    PFC William A. Oberg was a rifleman serving with Weapons Platoon, H Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines. At 2200 hours on July 5, 1965, he was killed by another marine on sentry duty. His body was evacuated by helicopter at first light the next morning. The incident was determined to be an intentional homicide. One account suggests that the sentry was attempting to wake Oberg to take his turn at sentry duty when Oberg swung and hit the 17 year-old Marine sentry in the mouth. In reaction, the sentry fired point blank with his M-14, killing Oberg. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vvmf.org]

  • Bill Finkel Look Alike at Marine Corps Museum

    Posted on 6/2/14 - by Former Sgt. Hank Frydel
    I served with Bill Finkel through recruit training (Parris Island) and ITR at Camp Lejeune (June through September of 1965). There's a display at the entrance to the Vietnam Section of the Marine Corps Museum near Quantico that depicts a US Marine and South Vietnamese soldier. The Marine in that display has a remarkable resemblance to Bill Finkel.

    Semper Fi,
