Geoffrey Green

Geoffrey and I were classmates at East Lansing High School
Fe was a wrestler athlete, as well as an outstanding student.
He was quiet and perhaps a bit shy, but always someone who could be counted on to help!
I had to leave East Lansing early due to relocation by my parents to Arizona. I was not able to graduate with Geoffrey, but ran into him later in Vietnam as he was leading his platoon.
The last i saw of him, but I am grateful for the privilege-in High School and, he as a Marine and me as Army. I will never forget and i thank Geoffrey for his service to our country and his ultimate maximum sacrifice that any person can ever make--thank you!

Final Mission of 1LT Geoffrey E. Green

1LT Geoffrey E. Green was an Infantry Officer serving with B Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. On September 8, 1965, during Operation Piranha, a U.S. Marine Corps operation on the Batangan Peninsula in Quang Ngai Province, RVN, to wipe out the 1st Viet Cong Regiment, B Company began a search and clear operation in their area of responsibility. At about 12:30 PM, the Marines captured six Viet Cong near a cave. Other Viet Cong then started firing from the mouth of the cave. After a futile attempt to get the occupants of the cave to cease fire and surrender, demolitions were exploded in the mouth of the cave, killing sixty-six of the enemy. 1LT Green and several Marines entered the cave to conduct a search and were overcome by the lack of oxygen. Green did not recover and died of asphyxia. Eight other Marines were successfully revived. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and Command Chronology, 3rd Marine Division, September 1965]
