I was a member of the 1st platoon 1st Recon Btn. in the fall of 1968 and ran many missions with them before being transferred to 1st Force Recon when they were based at Camp Reasoner.

I would love to get in contact with my old team-mates, but hesitate to put my my address or phone number out there on the entire internet.

If the information was limited to only 1st btn. members, that would not be an issue for me.

PS my website is: http://firstforcerecon.com and I have written a book which includes my Btn. patrols. "Chasing Charlie" is available on Amazon.

I have linked in your website to my page.

1st Recon Battalion Association

Hello Association Members,

As part of my Membership Director & Webmaster job for this year,

I have been trying to locate those whose information is missing or incorrect.

I am checking the accuracy of all of our members' information. It has not been done for over 12 years. I have been finding a lot of our members whose information is no longer correct.

I really would like to take you off my list this year.

So please let me know if your information is correct.

Your 1st Recon Battalion Association Website Information: Click Here

My email address is floyd@weststpaulantiques.com

Please keep your information up to date this will allow the Association to send messages out from time to time by email or by mail.

By updating your email address this will save $$$ on postage from time to time.

Hope to hear from you soon..

Thanks for all your help.


Semper Fi,

Floyd Ruggles

Membership Director & Webmaster.
