  • Final Mission of SN Richard C. Adamo

    Posted on 3/3/18 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SN Richard C. Adamo and GM3 Gary L. Crampton were crewman on the U.S. Navy Harbor Utility Craft YFU-4. On February 28, 1968, YFU-4 was in a flotilla proceeding up the Cua Viet River to Dong Ha when attacked by North Vietnamese Army rocket-propelled grenade (RPG), automatic weapon, and mortar fire off Thanh Xuao in Quang Tri Province, RVN. An RPG hit the starboard 20mm gun which was manned by GM3 Crampton and SN Adamo. Both sailors died after suffering massive shrapnel wounds. Another seven crewmen were injured, two critically.

    DEAR SEAMAN ADAMO.

    I USED TO DRIVE BY WOODHAVEN EVERY DAY WHEN I WENT TO WORK. I MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN YOU, BUT I RESPECT YOU. AT 18, YOU WERE FAR TOO YOUNG TO LOSE YOUR LIFE.

    REST IN PEACE.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
