Ground Casualty

PFC Harold G. Breton served with B Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On February 23, 1969, nearly a month after arriving in Vietnam, Breton was with his unit deployed in a night defensive position three miles northeast of An Hoa Airfield in Quang Nam Province, RVN. They were winding down Operation Taylor Common, a search and destroy operation conducted by Task Force Yankee, a formation of the 1st Marine Division supported by the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), southwest of Hoi An from December 6, 1968 to March 8, 1969. At approximately 11:22 PM, Breton reportedly left his position to relieve himself without advising anyone. He unknowingly went beyond friendly lines in front of an adjacent position. Movement was detected, and troops in that position took him under fire with small arms fire and threw one M26 fragmentation grenade. Upon searching the area, the unit found a dead Marine (Breton). The incident was later reported to military investigators. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

My Older Step Brother Harold G. Breton

Private First Class Harold George Breton, was my older step brother. He was a really nice guy he always stuck up for the underdog. I remember being picked on by some neighborhood kids and he got involved and made them leave me alone and always watched out for me. He was kind to me as a child and I always remembered that about him. Lately I have had him on my mind a lot. It hurts to think that such a wonderful person was taken from this world to soon.

SEMPER FI MY BROTHER

Dear Harold I've been looking for you

I have been searching for you for your brother Alan. He is a sweet man that I have met through the American Legion. He asked if I could look for you on the Lewiston monument and at the cemetery for him. I gladly began my search for you. It has taken me a little bit a time but has been a great honor to do the research to find you and I wanted to thank you for your service and sacrifice that you made for our great country. I has been a privilege learning about you. May God keep you in his loving arms. God Bless Jodi Sage
