    Marine Corps Base Hawaii – Kaneohe Bay

    Former U.S. Marine Cpl. T.J. Croft (in red), a Vietnam veteran who served with Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, views a military operations on urban terrain (MOUT) training facility during a visit to Marine Corps Training Area Bellows, Hawaii, Aug. 22, 2012. Croft, a native of Omaha, Neb., served in Vietnam as a forward observer from 1966-1967. Nearly half a century since they fought through hell in Vietnam, approximately 30 former 2/3 Marines and their families visited the base to reminisce on their service and render honor to a brother lost in combat, Sgt. Maj. Wayne Hayes. Hayes was killed in action, Feb. 28, 1967, during Operation Prairie II while serving with many of the 2/3 veterans.
