United States Marine Corps Veteran - (1981 to 1990)
Ken is a highly decorated Marine he severed 9 years active duty, most of his tour was with a small specialized unit of the 1st Marine Brigade based out of Kaneohe bay Hawaii. It sounds nice however he was overseas most of the time and would be lucky to see Hawaii at best 1 month every year to year and a half. Ken received an honorable discharge. People have asked what was the scariest experience I have ever had, I always reply “Leaving the Corps and becoming a Civilian” Below are just a few unclassified operations Ken and his unit participated in.
*Ken’s unit was deployed to the Persian Gulf as well the Strait of Hormuz and Suez Canal after training for weeks for the mission that many of the very few people that even had knowledge of it called it a suicide mission. After our mission was carried out the situation in the Persian Gulf with Iran and Iraq would a few years later grow into a major operation called “Operation Earnest Will” it later was called the “tanker war “Ken’s unit’s mission was to destroy or takeover oil platforms that belonged to friendly Arab states that had been overrun by heavily armed Iranians. Using zodiac boats and the cover of night ken’s unit along with Navy Seal teams effetely beat the odds and either destroyed or took back several platforms with no loss of life to the good guys. (I can’t say the same for the bad guys).
*Somalia, long considered the most ungovernable country in the world. Ever since it plunged into chaos, Somalia has been serving as a hub for Islamic extremists and bands of pirates who plunder some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. Ken’s unit was sent to Somalia as well as Mombasa Kenya to train the so called military to carry rifles, dodge roadside bombs and avoid shooting one another by accident. And learn how to kill the out of control and vicious murdering rebels that still rape women and children and murder whole villages even until today. Our mission was to train the military to kill the rebels but not (officially get involved) so while on patrol when we came upon rebels we sat back and watched them handle the situation on their own (wink, wink).
*In 1983 Ken’s unit was redirected from an undisclosed location and arrived at Beirut Lebanon just a few hours after the bombing of the Marine Barracks that killed 220 Marines from 1st battalion 8th Marines under the 2nd Marine division and 18 sailors mostly Navy corpsman (Marines call them Doc, They are with marines in every battle and highly respected and treated as one of their own) also 3 soldiers were killed. About 2 minutes later and 6 km away after the attack a second suicide bomber blew up the French barracks killing 58 French soldiers. It was the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the battle of Iwo Jima of WWII. Ken was a squad leader and was deployed to the scene to search and destroy the Islamic Revolutionary guards and the Islamic Republic of Iran rebels in the area that were believed to be responsible for the attacks. Ken’s unit also assisted as well as provided security for the wounded while the US warships retaliated by using naval gunfire and the French assisted with airstrikes on the Islamic Revolutionary Guards positions.
*As an extraction leader using the cover of the night and launched from ships far out to sea via zodiac boats made our way to the jungles of the island of Leyte and assisted in the extraction of former Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos who had fled from his residence the Malacanan Palace located in Manila prior to the hostile 2 million strong rebels known as “People Power Revolution” also known as the (EDSA Revolution) stormed the palace. Providing safety and security from the armed rebels that were in pursuit the former president under the Reagan administration provided him safe passage to Hawaii.
while serving ken was severely injured and suffered major internal and external injuries. As a result ken spent his 10th year that he does not consider “serving” as a Marine, recovering and after a year of painful physical therapy and learning how to walk again on his own he was informed he could no longer serve on the front lines in the fleet Marine Force and could re-enlist with an administration position. Ken told his superiors that if he could not serve with his Marine Corps brothers watching each other’s back in some of the worst places on earth he did not want to serve at all.
