Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 1/7 was supposed to land on 13 August 1965 but our mail address was "Marine 13" and the Colonel would not land a "Marine 13" on Friday the 13th so we went ashore on 14 August. Our designation was changed from BLT 1/7 to 1st Bn, 7th Marines, 4th Brigade, but we were then assigned to the 3rd Marine Division.

SEMPER FIDELIS

PFC Paul Hassey was one of eleven Charlie 1/7 Marines killed in action during
Operation INDIANA.

VirtualWall Note:
On arrival of the 1st Marine Division, the 7th Marines were reassigned to 1st MarDiv.
