Beginning in 1965, Allan Repp served 4 honorable years of service in the United States Marine Corps. After graduating from Eastport High School on Long Island, NY, Repp was eager to serve our country and enlisted at the age of 18. He went on to train in infantry in Parris Island, North Carolina, and Key West, where he picked up MOS 0311 and a second MOS as Engineer. On the day of Repp’s 21st birthday, he arrived in Vietnam at the start of the Tet Offensive, and continued on to serve as Combat Engineer for 1st Engineer Battalion. Repp also served on the USS Tripoli and the USS Valley Forge for 6 months and participated in 13 combat operations with the 7th Marine Regiment.
During his service, Repp exemplified noticeable leadership and valor. He has since received numerous well-deserved medals for his valiant service, including Vietnam Campaign, Vietnam Service, National Defense, Combat Action, Security Guard, Navy/USMC Accommodation w/Combat V, and Good Conduct. Today, he continues to show his passion of serving our country by actively volunteering at his local church, participating in the Marine Corp League, and serving on the board of the Eastport America Legion as former Commander and Chaplain.
