    BM3 James C. Dickerson and SN Joseph B. Adams served with Military Police Security Operations, Naval Support Activity Da Nang, U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam. On August 16, 1968, they were traveling in a U.S. Navy security pick-up truck near a garbage dump, a mile and a half southeast of Marble Mountain Air Field in Quang Nam Province, RVN. As they passed a group of Vietnamese civilians, their truck detonated an unknown-type explosive device. The blast caused a conflagration, killing the two sailors and engulfing the vehicle in flames. Fifteen Vietnamese were injured in the incident. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

    Joseph and I were in the same training together before we flew into Danang. He was a real likable guy. We were both at NSA Danang East Security Camp Carter. We would even have one or two at the E M club. I will never forget the night they called on the field phone and told me he had been killed. Way to young, I still miss him today and it's been fifty years. God Bless Him.

  • Visited Meadow Fork

    I know you know everything that happens now. I was in Texas when you were laid to rest on the side of that little mountain in Meadow Fork. The one thing I wanted to do in my lifetime was to visit your resting place. When Aunt Bill and Uncle Louis went to Heaven, we learned from your mama's obituary that her mother was a cousin to our gggrandfather. When Susan took me on our adventure to find your memorial, we were thrilled to see that you, and many of your mother's family are interred in the same mountain cemetery as our ancestors.
    From the moment we met, as kids, we felt like family. Now I know we really were, and I know why I was so determined to visit your resting place. Some day we'll all have a great reunion. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you, and smile. Love you Joe.
