There were at least five men from Mountain View who belonged to 'C' Company, 12 th Battalion, United States Marine Corps Reserves, that met monthly in San Francisco. Besides Harry Pinto, there was Phil Silia. Bill Miller, Peter Teresi, Herb Woods.and myself. We were called to active duty on November 7, 1940. Platoon Ssrgeant Pinto was our enlisted leader, and certainly one of the finest Marines that I ever knew in five years of service.
