The fellows from Charlie Company 1/327 challenged, Bravo Co 1/327 to a fishin contest in Tampa 2005 at the 101st National reunion there. It must got good to them as they put out the challenge again.
The pictures are of the second contest in Brownsville Texas 16 Jan thru 21 Jan.
B/1/327 was represented by Kert Southerland of Louisburg NC, Jim Gilmore of Lombard Ill, Larry Cole of Jacksonville NC and me, Martin DiOrio, the bastard doorgunner from A/101/AHB “Comancheros”, Cleveland Ohio.
C/1/327 had a whole bunch of guys. I hope I don’t forget anyone. There was Walt Jackson, Pat Rohan, Roy Aguerro, Roger Morris, John “Doc” I forget his family name shame on me, Pat McMannus and I forget who else.
We also had a lone Marine with us as our Bodyguard.
I thought I would send this along to establish contact and maybe grow the group.
