Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Beirne Lovely | A Company, 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division - Marines

5:22   |   Newly commissioned out of ROTC at Dartmouth, Beirne Lovely went to the basic school at Quantico where he received a lot of grief for switching over from the Army. Soon, he and fraternity brother John Feltner were on their way to Vietnam, concerned that all the combat jobs would be gone before they got there. Not a problem, as it turned out.
