[QUOTE="LimaPanther, post: 543000, member: 13308"] I'm an old Recon Marine. If you check the Recon history you will see it was reformed in 1958. I was part of that and was selected in 1960. Back then you could volunteer for Recon but in most cases you were selected and assigned by HQs. Back then the Bn only had 2 companies besides Hqs Co. Served with A Co 2d Recon Bn, B Co 3d Recon Bn and then back to 2d Force Recon Co. B Company 3rd was stationed in Hawaii and had not seen the rest of the Bn in years until Vietnam. Hawaii was considered an overseas tour. Back then all Recon Marines were 0311s or commo. Because we kept being told we could expect to go back to a grunt unit many of us left the Corps and joined the Army to go SF. Problem was that SF didn't have an MOS so we went where the Army needed us. I was with 10th Group when the entire Group was in Germany. Spent 2 tours in Nam as a LRRP. [/QUOTE]
