About this title

Synopsis:

Jerry Czarnowski ( Ski II ) enlisted in the Marine Corps in August, 1965. Following Boot Camp, Basic and Advanced Infantry Training, he was assigned to Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines (3/5) in January, 1966. He was transferred to India Company the next month , where Ski was among a handful of India Company Veterans who completed their entire tours with 3/5 from the time the Battalion formed up at Camp Pendleton until he returned Stateside in April, 1967. The late Lieutenant General E. J. Bronars, the former Commanding Officer of 3/5, once described the Battalion as the most decorated Battalion in the history of the Marine Corps involvement in Viet Nam . Ski s pride will linger forever, having served with the Teufelhuden or Devil Dogs of 3/5 and with Marines who were awarded this Nation s highest honors. Though he wasn t aware of the notoriety, Czarnowski became a Company legend to replacements filling India s ranks. He was known to them as The Lost Marine . The story of that event (among many other of Ski s misadventures and mishaps) is documented here. His highest accomplishments were avoiding Courts Martial. Enjoy the stories, and, of course, Semper Fi .
