The air and naval gunfire liaison company (ANGLICO) is one of the most unique and least understood organizations in the United States Marine Corps. It evolved from assault signal companies of World War II. These units, comprised of US Marine and Navy personnel, were organized into naval gunfire, air liaison and shore-party communications teams to and provide Fire support Coordination and Communications between the U.S. ARMY and the U.S. NAVAL forces.

Similar units, called joint assault signal companies (JASCOs), were organized to support Navy-Army operations. In 1947, the Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) eliminated JASCO and shifted all JASCO responsibilities to the Navy. In 1949, the Marine Corps formed the ANGLICO to support both Navy-Marine Corps and Navy-Army operations. Since then ANGLICO units have seen action in Korea, Lebanon, Cuba, Vietnam, Grenada, the Middle East, and Desert Storm.

ANGLICO (Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company) MARINES were trained in: Jump School, Jump Master School, Ranger School, SERE School, JEST, Amphibious Warfare School, Forward Observers School, and ANGLICO Basic School (ABC). MOS for an ANGLICO MARINE would be: 0861 Forward Observer, 0802 Field Artillery officer, 2533 and 2531 Radio Operator..

ANGLICO MARINES spent most of the time in support of U.S. ARMY, like the 101st Airborne, 82nd Airborne, 75th Rangers, 5th Special Forces, and U.S. NAVY, and Allied services. Units, British Royal Marines, Korean Marines, and NATO and Allied forces.

ANGLICO MARINES were proven from World War II, Korea, Vietnam all the way through to Desert Storm and Somalia. There was not a place that these MARINES didn't see.

Thumbs up 1st ANGLICO

http://www.anglicoassociation.org/1stAngHistory.htm
Historical Division Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps Washington, D.C. November 1970

The 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company was activated at Marine Barracks, Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii, on 2 March 1951. The unit immediately began training with both shore bombardment exercises and operations with aircraft on board ship. Less than two months later, the first team, consisting, of 6 Officers and 21 enlisted men, was sent on TAD with the 1st Marine Division in Korea. A few months later, another team of 4 officers and 16 enlisted men were sent on TAD to AirFMFPac at Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro, California. On 22 September 1951, the company command post was transferred to Marine Corps Supply Depot, Oahu, Territory of Hawaii. The depot was later re-designated as Camp Catlin.

From time to time, additional small teams were sent TAD with the lst Marine Division in Korea. These teams were in addition to those of the ANGLICO, lst Signal Battalion, normally a part of the lst Marine Division. Although the headquarters, of the lst ANGLICO remained in Hawaii during the Korean conflict, liaison teams from the company contributed materially to operations in that conflict.

The 1st ANGLICO continued to remain a valuable element of Marine ready forces in the Pacific during the decade following Korea. To maintain its combat readiness, the company participated in many exercises including ANGLEX-54N and Operation ROCKY SHOALS at Fort Lewis, Washington. In October-1955, the 1st ANGLICO was relocated from Camp Catlin to Camp H. M. Smith, Oahu.

With the deployment of Marine combat units to the Republic of Vietnam in early 1965, Sub Unit One of the 1st ANGLICO was activated for overseas duty on a temporary basis on 19 May 1965. Again, the headquarters of the lst ANGLICO remained in Hawaii, this time at Kaneohe Bay, and conducted an extensive program of training implemented by rotation of personnel with the sub unit.

While the basic mission of the 1st ANGLICO was to furnish support for amphibious operations, service in Vietnam has created a collateral mission, that of controlling naval gunfire and direct air support for U. S. Marine, Army, and Allied units engaged in combat operations requiring such support.

Sub Unit One in Vietnam has furnished many small fire control teams, both on a permanent basis and for special operations. By early 1967, more than half the personnel for the 1st ANGLICO were committed in the Republic of Vietnam. Less than one year later, three-quarters of the lst ANGLICO were in Vietnam with Sub Unit one. Since that time, Marines from this unit has worked in support of numerous major operations, including PEGASUS, BOLD MARINER, and IRON MOUNTAIN.

Default 1st ANGLICO Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients

(Some text omitted - meaning not clear.)

Pless died 20 Jul 1969 on a motorcycle.


PLESS, STEPHEN W. - Major (then Capt.), USMC, VMD-6, Mag-36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing. Action: Near Quang Nai, Republic of Vietnam, 19 Aug 1967. Inducted: Atlanta, Ga. DOB 6 Sep 1939, Newman, Ga. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a helicopter gunship pilot attached to Marine Observation Squadron 6 in action against enemy forces. During an escort mission Maj. Pless monitored an emergency call that a large Viet Cong force was overwhelming four American soldiers stranded on a nearby beach.

Maj. Pless flew to the scene and found 30 to 50 enemy soldiers in the open.


Some of the enemy were bayoneting and beating the downed Americans. Maj. Pless displayed exceptional airmanship as he launched a devastating attack against the enemy force, killing or wounding many of the enemy and driving the remainder back into a tree line. His rocket and machinegun attacks were made at such low levels that the aircraft flew through debris created by explosions from its rockets.

Seeing one of the wounded soldiers’ gesture for assistance, he maneuvered his helicopter into a position between the wounded men and the enemy, providing a shield, which permitted his crew to retrieve the wounded.

During the rescue the enemy directed intense fire at the helicopter and rushed the aircraft again and again, closing to within a few feet before being beaten back.

When the wounded men were aboard, Maj. Pless maneuvered the helicopter out to sea. Before it became safely airborne, the overloaded aircraft settled 4 times into the water.

Displaying superb airmanship, he finally got the helicopter aloft. Major Pless’ extraordinary heroism coupled with his outstanding flying skill prevented the annihilation of the tiny force.

His courageous actions reflect great credit upon him and uphold the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the US Naval Service.
