Our Post namesake, CPL. David Johnston served with MIKE CO 3rd Battalion 5th Marines during his tour in Vietnam. CPL. Johnston was K.I.A. 3 MAR 69 during OPERATION TAYLOR COMMON. As a result of his actions during the operation, CPL. Johnston was awarded the Bronze Star (posthumously). The link below to OUR MARINES (Dedicated to the Marines of M CO 3/5) at www.combatwife.net, chronicles the history of MIKE CO in Vietnam through the eyes of the Marines of MIKE CO. It was through the OUR MARINES web page and the stories therein that led to the reuniting (in 2007) 38 years after that fateful day in MAR 69 , of the Marines of M 3/5 with their fallen brother CPL. Johnston.
