Dear Christy I would like to know what date you took your oath? As I recall that when I and 120 other people were marched out on the center field of the old Met Satdium we’re called the Twins Platoons also. Or maybe I’m wrong and only half of us that day were sworn in to the Marines Corps! Now when I went too San Diego I was in the 3012 platoon in boot camp. I just have seen the thirty minute clip on the FSN about the Minnesota Twins Platoon and I don’t recall any of those names so there might be a problem, either I’m wrong or there might have actually been two platoons sworn in that afternoon? By the way I don’t remmber the final score of the game, that I was sworn in at cause in the 3rd inning they had us go to the Mpls Naval Air station til it was time to take off for San Diego. I maybe have things screwed up and if so let me know. I to lost good friends and comrades over there, and as I’m typing I’m looking at my Third Battalion Platoon 3012 Annual. The faces never leave my mind and I’ve made contact with quite a few ofthese past few yaers thru the internet. I do believe that I and some 100 plus people were sworn in on May the 28th 1967 I could be wrong, but I’d like you to check your records and see if one Charles D. Baker from Stewartville Minnesota was in your Platoon I may have missed it. Please give me a reponse at cdbake304@msn.com or Charles D. Baker 304 6th ave Sw Stewartville Minnesota 55976 I too feel proud of my hertige and MY Corps . Semper Fi Carry on!

Great book. The final chapters were exceptional. Skip Schmidt’s story is a reminder that we have, and will have, a lot of PTSD resulting from Iraq and Afgh. service. Christy, I’m glad you made it home and that your children have had the ability/privilege of reading your story. I was lucky to be able to attend my unit’s reunion two years ago. Best wishes, Barry.

Christy, thank you very much for pulling together the information that enabled you to publish “The Twins Platoon”. We briefly met at the Washington County Library event last March, during which time I purchased a copy that you were kind enough to sign. It is an amazing read. It took me back in time, not only to Vietnam, but also to my days at Harding High School, where I was a classmate of; Gerry Baltes, Candi Dupre and a good friend of Medal of Honor recipient, Bob Pruden. The flow of your book was wonderful and a very ‘easy read’. I’m sure you had to edit-out a great deal of information before the book was finally published, but I want you to know ‘The Twins Platoon’ captured the moments perfectly, helping the reader understand what it was like for a bunch of high school guys ‘over there’ and Skip Schmidt’s all too common aftermath. It took far too long, however, the public is finally coming around to recognizing the fact that Vietnam happened, and those that served are deserving of our countries respect. Your book goes a long way to helping people understand our experiences, before, during and after our tours. Thanks again.

In my opinion it is obvious. Try to look for the answer to your question in google.com
Now all became clear to me, I thank for the necessary information.
It is similar to it.
The safe answer 😉
I can not take part now in discussion – it is very occupied. But I will soon necessarily write that I think.
