    SP4 Carl E. Adkins was a clerk-typist serving with B Company, 2nd Battalion, 18th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division. Working in a rear echelon capacity did not preclude handling weapons as part of their daily routine since many cooks and clerks like SP4 Adkins, plus others with administrative and supply duties, participated in providing security on the perimeters of where they were based. On December 6, 1967, SP4 Adkins was on guard duty providing perimeter defense security when a hand grenade he was carrying exploded. Adkins was fatally injured after suffering metal fragmentation wounds. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

    DEAR SPEC 4 ADKINS,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A CLERK-TYPIST. A FRIEND WANTED TO DO WELL ON HIS INDUCTION TEST SO HE COULD HAVE THIS MOS. HE GOT ARTILLERYMAN. BUT, ANYONE IN VIETNAM COULD MAKE THE ULTIMATE SERVICE, AS YOU DID. WISH IT WASN'T SO.
    REST IN PEACE.

    Dear SP4 Carl Edward Adkins, 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

    Curt Carter
