Military History/Fleet Marine Corps Device


Sir......I served with NMCB3 in Chu-Lai 1966. Our Battalion earned the "Battle E " for our efforts there. It was , to the best of my knowledge, all perssonel was authorized to wear the Fleet Marine Corps device on our Vietnam Service Medal. I have searched and was not able to verify this. Any information with regards to the issuance of this device to our Battalion will be GREATLY APPRECIATED.
         Thank You Sir

Dear Lewis,
