  • Final Mission of SP4 Jeffrey A. Maurer

    Posted on 3/4/19 - by
    SGT Elvis W. Osborne Jr. and SP4 Jeffrey A. Maurer were Rangers serving with Team 76, H Company, 75th Infantry, 1st Cavalry Division. On June 9, 1972, they were on a patrol led by Osborne conducting reconnaissance near Tan Uyen, approximately eight miles southwest of Phuo Vinh City in Binh Duong Province, RVN. After helicopter gunships raked a North Vietnam Army bunker complex there, the team went in to assess the damage. Either a rocket or a command-detonated bomb rigged as a mechanical ambush device claimed their lives. Osborne and Maurer were among the last U.S. Army infantrymen killed by enemy action in the war.

  • Never met, heartfelt condolences to your family

    I was put up for adoption in 1960. Jeffery’s Father Alan was my birthrite Father. I found my birthrite Mother in 1990 and met her in Minnesota. I live in Memphis, but born in Des Moines. I found out about Jeffery and his family during my visit. I went to DC to visit family because that’s where my adoptive Mother was from. We went to the wall to look up your name and honor you. Your in my heart and prayers. We look alike and I wish I had met you and your family. Bless them for raising a courageous son. Always in my heart, Lisa J Murphey...aka Renee Diane Laucamp Maurer

    I barely know who Jeffrey Alan Maurer is. But I was assigned to do a History report on him. Now that I am reading all these facts about him... it really makes me think. I would like to thank this man for risking his life for our country. God Bless everyone.

    Our time was short at Clarence Community School, but you made an impression. A half-scale traveling version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was in Cedar Falls recently and I touched your name and remembered. Thank you to all who served and those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. You will not be forgotten
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Jeffrey Alan Maurer, 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, Sir
