  • Final Mission of LCPL Gerald P. Metott

    Posted on 3/30/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    LCPL Gerald P. Metott, HN Richard Jensen, and PFC William L. Hunt were members of 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, 3rd Marine Division, III MAF. On November 6, 1965, they were traveling in a M422 Mighty Mite when they hit mine near La Chau (2), approximately 2 miles south of the Tuy Loan Bridge in the vicinity of Da Nang, Quang Nam Province, RVN. Hunt and Metott were killed by the explosion, however Jensen survived the blast but was critically injured. His wounds were severe enough that he was medically evacuated to the U.S. Air Force Hospital at Clark Air Base in the Philippines where he succumbed to his wounds on November 23, 1965.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LCPL Gerald Patrick Metott, 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

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.
