    In Aug '67, Project Rapid Fire (B-36 Provisional) was created. Project Rapid Fire used the same Mobile Guerrilla Task Force of BJ 31 plus the one used for BJ 32 (TF 966), which had come from A-304. They also got 20 LRRPs from various Infantry units, e.g. 1st, 9th, 25th Inf, 11th ACR, & Lt. Inf. Bdes. A-303 was redesignated A-361, and A-304 was redesignated as A-362.

  6. The Paramarines were disbanded during WWII! The Recon Marines (Force Recon) and other continued to become Parachute trained at Fort Benning to this day. After completing Army Jump School, the Marines are issued Army Parachute wings. When they return to the USMC they must complete additional Parachute Jumps to qualify for the Navy/Marine Corps Wings.

  12. :thumbsup: My brother, Bob, enlisted into the Army in 1966 and after completing Basic at Fort Ord, he was sent to Fort Devens for ASA training. He was initially trained as a slow speed Morse Interceptor. Bob applied for OCS and was given a class date, so he became un-deployable. The Army changed their policy about allowing HS graduates to be eligible for commissions. Bob was placed into a holding company and attended fast speed Morse interceptor and Hanoi Dialect Vietnamese training. After not being deployed for a almost a year, my brother signed a waiver allowing him to be deployed. Bob
