  • Final Mission of SFC William J. Everhart

    Posted on 6/21/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SFC William J. Everhart and SP5 Billy M. Smith were infantry operations and intelligence specialists assigned to Detachment A1-132 (Ban Don), 1st Special Forces Group, U.S. Army Special Forces Vietnam, MAAGV. On November 8, 1963, SFC Everhart and SP5 Smith were part of a patrol with mountain tribesmen in the Dar Lac Plateau region near the Cambodian frontier, approximately 170 miles northeast of Saigon. SFC Everhart was fatally wounded when a Viet Cong machine gunner suddenly raked the members of the patrol. SP5 Smith suffered a graze wound of his head and broke his shoulder in falling. The Vietnamese commander of the patrol was also wounded. A firefight ensued resulting in one enemy killed and an unknown number of guerrillas wounded. On October 7, 1995, Billy M. Smith passed away at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Dallas, TX, due to the injuries he suffered in the ambush thirty-two years earlier. His name was added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in May 2001. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/16/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SFC William Joseph Everhart, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

  • To Put A Face With A Name

    Posted on 6/21/12 - by Carol (Cipriani) Haberchak haberchak1311@comcast.net

    Dear William, to honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for our country I want to make sure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed, so it is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and picture of you. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, William, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
