Delta Company 1st Bn. 7th Marines was a combat unit that served with the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1970. Although we had our own theater of operations, we were also utilized as a reactionary force for the 1st Battalion 7th Marines 1st Marine Division. On August 14th, 1965 Delta Company landed in Vietnam.

Your Board of Representatives,
War is a sad thing. We’ve always spoke about how, at the end of the day, it forms a life long bond with those Marines we served with. This has always been and will always be. This Burial at Sea says it all.
Burial at sea video …
Here’s a rather sad sea burial – a somber and reflective video of 1 1/2 mins.
Loyce Edward Deen, an Aviation Machinist Mate 2nd Class, USNR, was a gunner on a TBM Avenger. On November 5, 1944, Deen’s squadron participated in a raid on Manila where his plane was hit multiple times by anti-aircraft fire while attacking a Japanese cruiser. Deen was killed. The Avenger’s pilot, Lt Robert Cosgrove, managed to return to his carrier, the USS Essex. Both Deen and the plane had been shot up so badly that it was decided to leave him in it. It is the only time in U.S. Navy history (and probably U.S. military history) that an aviator was buried in his aircraft after being killed in action.
