Hello,

My name is Alain Boulet. I landed at Beiruit international Airport in 1982 and surrounded it with kilo company. I was a Dragon Gunner with Weapons Company. I then secured the coastal highway with the Tow section. After this, I ended my Beiruit tour surrounding Beiruit University with Lima Company. My batallion commander was Blackjack Matthews.


I am looking for any marine who was on Med Cruise June 4th 1981-Nov 10th 1981, stationed aboard the USS Guadalcanal. I was the mule driver of the 106 recoiles rifle. During an operation on rough seas (off the coast of Persona Italy), a helicopter flipped on the flight deck (I believe it was a Cobra) as I was about to board another helicopter, throwing helicopter parts through the air. This killed a Navy Seaman who was lost at sea. I need an approximate date of the accident. I'm not sure, but the helicopter squadron may have been HMM-263 or HMM-162. Could anyone please reach out to me if they remember this incident and the approximate date?


Along with my email I can be reached at 802-333-3239


Semper Fi,

Alain Boulet

It has been far too many hears, and far too many wars since my time in Beirut - but I was there again last night. I believe it is time to join and will start the process now. God Bless those who have gone before us and to those who will not ever forget.

On this Veterans Day I would like to send my heart felt Thank You for all the men and women of the units that served in my birth country Lebanon. I was a young teenager when the War in Beirut started. I was a casualty of that war and my parents thought it best to ship me off out of Lebanon and to the US. I have been in the US for the past 30 years, worked as an EMT with the fire department, and that is all because I met a nice, gentle Marine Corporal, who gave me his insignia that I keep to this date.

Thank you for helping my birth country when we needed your help the most, and thank you for serving my adoptive country and keeping it a beacon of hope and prosperity for all who need hope and prosperity.

Waseem
