About:

I added several hundred images November 4, 2011.  Enjoy...

SECTIONS:
1- Camp Pendleton, CA (May 1979 - Dec 1980)
2- Okinawa, Japan (Dec 1980 - Dec 1981)
3- Camp LeJeune, NC (Dec 1981 - May 1983
4- Fort Pickett, VA ( Late 1982 give or take...)

The images on this site were taken while I served in the Marine Corps from 1979 to 1983. They are predominately from my three major duty stations: Camp Pendleton, CA; Camp Schwab, Okinawa; Camp LeJeune, NC. During that time I served as an 1833 (AmTrac Crewman), 0431 (Embarkation NCO) and also went to Jeep four-wheel drive school, PMI (Primary Marksmanship Instructor) school and served at Company Clerk for a time while at Courthouse Bay in Camp LeJeune.

I bought my first camera because I wanted to show my friends back home what I was doing and what life in the Marines was like. I began shooting subjects that were documentary in nature. Pictures of lockers, heads, daily activities etc. While I had no technical knowledge about photography such as composition, exposure, depth of field etc, I did manage to come up with some interesting images. Remember, while almost everyone has a little digital camera with them now in the early 1980's, cameras were not terribly common. 

These early experiences lead me to pursue photography when I was discharged. I went to Eastern Connecticut State University for two years where I enrolled in every possible photography course and even taught an internship in black and white photography. In 1985, I transferred to Syracuse University where I majored in Photojournalism and the Newhouse School before switching to the College of Visual and Performing Arts. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography in 1988. 

I've worked as a photojournalist for eight years as both a newspaper staffer and freelancer. Some of my employers and clients included the Boston Herald, Boston Globe, Quincy Patriot Ledger, New Britain Herald and the Associated Press.

All these years I have kept the original negatives from my Marine Corps days and have now scanned them in my new Nikon Super Coolscan 5000ED at full resolution. I want to share them with anyone who has an interest in those days. There are many photographs of people I no longer know. There are friends with whom I have lost touch. It is my hope that these images will rekindle personal memories as well as lead to reestablishing friendships that are long lost. When looking at the photographs, if you see yourself or someone you know, let me know. Also, pass the link to this site to anyone you think might enjoy these images. -Semper Fi.
Equipment Used:

My camera was a used Canon AT-1, the fully manual version of the famed AE-1. I bought it used from a Marine in "C" company, 3rd AABN, Del Mar. The AT-1 was simple to use and came with a standard 50/f1.8. I bought a generic telephoto zoom lens which was very cheap. I didn't yet understand about glass quality... I also used some cheap generic flash. I used to put all my equipment in a gas mask carrying case instead of a camera bag. This way, nobody bothered me about having my equipment... It was nice and stealthy. I did get asked several times why I always carried a gas mask. Was I afraid of getting gassed? Hehehehehe...

SAE IN BEQ BEFORE THEFT 1980
I bought the SAE II Integrated Amp and Tuner in Oceanside along with 4 Advent Loudspeaker and ran then in the famous 'stacked' configuration. This system would play loud and crisp and accurate.  Friends would come to our room and we'd play at earsplitting levels. Once at lunch we cranked the tunes so loud I got in trouble and had to clean the Company Office for a week straight.

LVTPT UP THE LST RAMP 1024
Going up the ramp of an LST could be a bit scary. If the ship was bobbing a lot you had to time it just right get over the ramp while on the low part of the bobbing. If you were half on and half off the ramp would come to the surface and basically knock you off and into the water sideways. This could be fatal for all the crew and passengers.

I was at Delmar from 9/79-4/80 at Schwab from 4/80-4/81 and at courthouse bay from 4/81-6/82 when not out on floats. I have looked at these pictures over the last several years and they bring back memories. Not all good, not all bad.

I'm the Marine you met at the commuter lot in Newington today, Cris. Your pictures brought back a lot of good memories.

I graduated boot camp at PI in November '81 and spent most of my first hitch with 3/8 out of Geiger, during which time I enjoyed a few months in Beirut with 24 MAU Peacekeeping Force in '82-'83. The remainder of those first three years I was with 2nd LAV Bn at mainside Lejeune.

After I reenlisted, I was initially assigned to DCo, 3d Tracs at the Stumps, then reassigned to 5/11, the arty battalion there. Followed that up with two years of sea duty aboard the battleship Iowa, then ended my career at 1st Landing Support Battalion at DelMar.

It was nice meeting you today, Cris. Perhaps we'll bump into one another again some time. Until then, Semper fi, brother.

excellent photos. Got to rock 2nd time in 82. stationed that tour for 3 yrs. with Sgt Richard Warren, Sgt Young, Cpl Delap and Cpl Grosse. Delap and grosse did their whole 4 yrs on the rock and eas out. Warren went to pendelton got in trouble but made it to Gy. and medical for backproblems. Never heard of Clayton Young after he rotated to pendelton.

As well as the korea float.  I lost my hydostatic steering, and nearly rolled my track down a ravine!  Semper-Fi and Yat Yas!

Wow, great memories.  I was at Lejeune 77-79, schwab 79, pendleton 1980. I don't have a single picture of when I was in - as you said, nobody had cameras then.  This was especially true for 03's, as we had to carry every single thing and even then everything always got beat up, etc.  I took an instamatic out w/me to field once and it got soaked or crushed or something, my short-lived USMC photography career.  So I really appreciate all these pics, although I don't know anyone, wasn't in tracs.

American Jarhead, Thanks for postinpics. I was w Weapons 2/4 at Schwab in 79. Lost all my gear in Camp Fuji fuel explosion. That bar st. sign always made me howl!!! Like we wouldn't have found it!! I think they took it down a couple yrs. ago. I plan on returning there someday, before they construct that a)irfield at Schwab (right over coral reefs). What a shame. Passed thru Camp Lejeune are recently, you wouldn't recognize it. No more court st.(place sucked anyways)  Semper Fi. Bro!!!

FANTASTIC Website! I added your link to my bookmark, and forwarded your website to my friends.  I really appreciate this tremendous resource. Also, another great website is http://www.veteranprograms.com where veterans can learn about hidden government benefits, how to properly increase their compensation, take part in super giveaway specials for veterans, and find out what merchants are giving discounts to veterans.
Keep up the great job!

You've got a great "scrapbook" depicting time in service with The Corps.  I've been out for 20 years, but some of these shots look so familiar to me that I almost feel as if I'm going to awake from a dream, to the sound of the Duty NCO shouting "Reveille!, Reveille!"

I am looking for my father. I have found a book with a picture of him. The book does not have a year but I believe it is around 1979-1980. The front of the book says "Marine Corps Recruit Depot" San Diego California, First Battalion, Platoon 1024. His name is Timothy Patrick Wright. If anyone has any information on him or knows how I could find anything about him with this lead, please email me at sandraclaus@americaschoice4re.com. Any info would be greatly appreciated. [Editor: Sandra, I didn't know him during my tour but I hope a visitor to this site does and contacts you. Best of luck and prayers! Let us know if you find him! -Cris aka: AmericanJarhead]

I was in A. Co. 1st Batt. 5th Marine Regiment from '94 - '98. I have lost all of the photos that i had taken during that time. I have lost contact with all my marine buddies but one and its been quite some time since I've heard anything from him. Looking at these photos brings back fond memories of Camp Pendleton and Okinawa. If anyone has any photos of anyone from 2nd platoon please e-mail them to me at macomcline@yahoo.com

I was an amtracker (1833) in 1st Tracked Veh Bn on Okinawa in B Co. in 1980-1981.  All of your photos of LVT operations on the beach, .50 cal range, on LSTs, etc., and downtown Henoko are just like old times!  Thanks for documenting all of this and saving the pictures.  And you have the only photo I have ever seen of somebody working the butts at the rifle range.  Not that any of us would ever forget what any of that looked like.  It's just weird to see a photo of it 25 years later and it looks exactly the way you remember it.

Great to see the photos from your era, and recall some of the same sites from decades before.  The Camp Pendleton shots all seem  quite familiar since Pendleton hasn't changed much.  Even today, when I attend various events and ceremonies there, the terrain and most of the buildings seem frozen in time.

It is Okinawa where the change is enormous.  As you know, I made the landing there April 1, 1945, and the Okinawa in your photos bear little resemblance to my recollections.  I left there in September 1945 to go to China with the 1st Marine Division, and have never been back.  Can't decide actually if I even want to go back.

I was in 3/1 @ Horno from 1984 to 1989.  Went on 3 WESTPACS.  As a radio tech, I rode inside the Communications AAV during 11th MAU WESTPAC operations in 1985, so I liked the pictures of the AAV climbing the ramp into the LST (USS Cayuga?).
