Location of 8th Marine regiment after cease fire?

Post by broken arrow marine » Mon Feb 04, 2008 2:12 pm

I was with A.T. TOW Co. Lt. out of Broken Arrow Oklahoma. My section was attached to 3/23 Marines.

Trying to find the area on Google earth but pics aren't very clear.

It was in an agricultural area. There was marble mansion in the midle of it. Any Marines here know what I'm talking about?
