    Posted on 12/19/14
    I served with the 3rd Mar Div. 68/69. While Doc Romanelli was assigned to the 12th Marines, he was active in the MedCap program going to the Vill rendering medical assistance. The opportunity came to go on temp assignment to a CAC platune. He and about 15 Marines lived in a VN village. trained the Popular Forces who were villigers that defended the vill from NVA/VC that moved through the area.
