In 1969, Regimental Landing Team 26 (the 26th Marines) returned home aboard troop ships to San Diego Ca. My Battalion commander had the personnel people in my Bn. check records. All of us who had served with the 26th Marines were ordered to fall out that Fri. at 0600 for inspection. We were then ordered aboard trucks with our weapons and trucked to San Diego to march with our old outfit in a “ticker” tape parade through San Diego. Some of us Viet Vets (very damned few of us) DID get a parade. Semper Fi and THANK YOU SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA.

The Marines are Gold in San Diego.
Very much respected along with the Navy here.
