Foundation New Extended Web

Lt. Col. Raymond A. Stewart, USMC (Ret.) Founder and President of the Marine Corps Vietnam Tankers Historical Foundation proudly announces the creation of the Foundation’s expanded web site.

It has been 6 years since the M.C.V.T.H.F. was incorporated as the official historical archive for the USMC Vietnam Tankers Association and its members.  The Board of Directors of the Foundation has for many years been eager to have  a more in-depth web site.  Thanks to the The USMC Vietnam Tankers Association  Board of Directors that goal as been reached.

The USMCVTA has provide space on their web site    since 2002.  The Foundation is most please to be working in collaboration  with the USMCVTA.

Richard “Dick” Carey, Founder and President Emeritus of the USMCVTA and  Historical Foundation board member is the site’s Public Relations director. Carey is working closely with Lloyd “Pappy” Reynolds, web master for the Vietnam Tankers Association.

Col. Stewart said, “It is imperative that the USMCVTA and the Foundation retain a close personnel relationship." 

He further stated, “We now have the ability to enhance the efforts of both organizations without confusing the missions of either entity.”

“Our goal at the Foundation is to provide Marine Corps Tankers the most professional and effective historical archive .” Lt. Col. Stewart concluded.

The site offers easy browsing to accommodate our visitors.  The pages on the site are less typical of most Marine Corps sites with muted backgrounds and easy to read text.


In the future video steaming and power point presentation will be added with professional voice-overs that will be provided by David “Doc” Forsyth who serves on the BoD.
