Biographical Information

Larry H. Weaver was born on July 18, 1948, in Batesville, Arkansas. On July 9, 1965, at the age of seventeen, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and trained for a little over a year before becoming old enough for active duty. Weaver served two tours of duty in Vietnam. His first tour began in February 1967 and lasted eight months. He served first as an infantry fire team leader, then as an infantry squad team leader with F Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment, 3rd Marine Division. Weaver participated in action at Khe Sanh, Hill 881, and Hill 861. He was wounded three times before being pulled out of combat and sent to Japan for recovery before returning to the United States in 1968. Weaver was sent back to Vietnam in May 1970 for a one year tour of duty. He served as a sergeant with a Combined Action Platoon with H Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Regiment, 1st Marine Division. Weaver's squad lived in a village with South Vietnamese soldiers and civilians where they taught them defense techniques and served as humanitarians.
