Let me know if you would like to have me make the transfer.

Captain Glenn Dill Mann, USMC
Mr Mann,

Presently I am a Marine in another uniform, now at the age of almost 70 years old.

As a young 18 year old in the Vietnam War, I had the honor of being a member of the squadron of VMO-6, also known as Marine Observation Squadron Six.

I was assigned to the S-1 Office of this historic squadron. This squadron served in World War II at Guadalcanal, above Iwo Jima, and over the skies of what was then the Republic of South Vietnam.

The above Marine was my administrative officer I worked for, for two months at Ky Ha, South Vietnam. Captain Mann was killed in action.

Would you be related to Captain Mann?

I also write you regarding Major William Joseph Goodsell, who was the Commanding Officer of VMO-6 at the time of his demise in the Vietnam War.

It should be noted that then Captain Stephen W Pless, USMC, also a pilot of VMO-6, earned the Medal of Honor, and his crew of three others, earned each the Navy Cross. Captain Pless was accidently killed while operating his motorcycle after returning to CONUS.

Another Marine that I have seen nothing written about, was LCpl James E. Antone. LCpl Antone was the crew chief of the helicopter that Major Goodsell was piloting on 16 June 1966 over Hill 488.

Major Goodsell's co-pilot, 1st Lt Butler, has been mentioned as it was the Lt that took command of the helicopter the Major was piloting when he was hit by enemy fire.

LCpl Antone, immediately assisted the Lt to maintain some control over the helicopter as it was also badly damaged, where they had to autorotate in landing.

For LCpl Antone's action that day in 1966, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. As you may be aware the Distinguished Flying Cross is usually awarded to officers of the Marine Corps that are pilots. LCpl Antone is very much a low ranking enlisted Marine. The Distinguished Flying Cross ranks above the Bronze Star Medal.

During the time VMO-6 was involved in the Vietnam War, approximately 54 Marines sacrificed their lives. Furthermore, six Marines earned the Navy Cross during the time mentioned, including Major William Joseph Goodsell.

I provide this information to you with those names of Marines that should be honored by you for their performances within the Vietnam War.

Semper Fidelis

Thank you so much for posting the photos of my dad. My mom and dad married in 1968 when he was stationed in NC. I was born in 1970 and they divorced a few years later so I never got to really see him except when I was 17 years old when I visited him in Arizona.

Thank you for your service and for sponsoring his page!!

In between Ancestry subscriptions right now. Not related to the BLAKE family. Would you like me to transfer Memorial# 57827989 and/or Memorial# 57827769 to your care? Their headstone photos were taken "along the way" way back in 2010.

No I'm the baby of the family born on 6/17/82. Unfortunately don't think we ever met. My dad never really talked about his Vietnam experience much all he'd really say was he lost a lot of good friends there.
