I had the privilege of meeting Marine Sgt Wes Love (one of the participants in Operation Allenbrook and eventual clearing of Go Noi Island) in a King Soopers grocery store. I had on my Marine Veterans cap and he struck up a conversation with me. I served four and ½ years in the USMC for 1972 to 1977 and participated in operation Frequent Wind, Eagle Pull and Fluid Drive. Fortunately I was never in anything as the hell the Marines went through to take Go Noi Island. What impressed me most about these leathernecks was the way they took care of their wounded and dead in pushing forward while killing the NVA and VC. Every Marine is a must read for all patriotic Americans because this book shows the fighting spirit of a group of warriors including the Corpsmen that define the character of those that fought the communists because it was their job without bringing the politics of their mission into judgment. One reason this book is so fascinating showing the spirit that Marines share is the fact that `Every Marine' is trained to be a basic infantry rifleman Military Occupation Specialty MOS 03:11. With that said what Uncle Sam did was go into Camp Pendleton at Margarita and assembled Marines from all kinds of non-infantry MOS'es like truck drivers, cooks, etc., turned them into 03:11's and sent them to Vietnam to kill NVA and VC. The Marines that fought at Go Noi did their jobs and many medals were awarded including the Medal of Honor but they paid a heavy price because many marines and corpsmen will wounded and/or killed. When Vietnam ended and the troops were coming home people that tried to talk to them about the war told others that they (the troops) didn't want to talk about it. I suggest you read this book and you'll know why.

"Every Marine" could be described as all the letters the Marines who participated in Allenbrook could not write, could not send home, and could not share with anyone before. I worked the Landing Zone at the Regimental Headquarters & took radio reports each evening compiling the KIA, MIA, wounded, etc. "Every Marine" gave me the opportunity to finally see the battle through the eyes of those who were on the island, not just the aftermath that I saw at the LZ. I often wondered what happened to the many replacements we loaded on the choppers, fresh from the States; The ones I did't later carry from the choppers to the medics. I wondered if the many attempts to get fresh water to those on the island were ever successful. Our hands were blistered from the heat just trying to get a load on the chopper. How would the men on the island be able to drink it? I wondered if anyone actually made it through the total campaign with out getting evacuated as a heat casualty. There were too many to count, they just didn't stop coming, and we seldom got to see them once the medics pulled them from the ice water. Allenbrook affected "every Marine" who participated and they still live it today. If you want to know what a true hero is...read "Every Marine" and you'll know, its every Marine that ever served his country. Semper Fi!

A riveting look at our Marines in a blood bath of a battle. A terrific read!

From the eyes of those that were there.

My father-in-law is in this book and was a real war hero. I never knew about much of it until reading this book. This is the story of just about every veteran of this conflict, the names and places may be different but the experiences are the same. This was an extraordindinary group of young men who went to war and did one hell of a job. I am proud to have known some of them. I would like to say to Ronnie and Bob Simonsen and the other 3/27 Marines guarding the gates...SEMPER FI!

I was there as a navy corpsman during the marines action on Goi Noi Island and the accounts were 100% accurate. There was a tremendous amount of research and documentation put into the book. It is a great tribute to all the marines and corpsmen who survived Operatioon Allen Brook.The book is very detailed from the formation of the unit, start to finish of the Batle for Goi Noi Island and the effect it had on the survivors.
