    Harold was a good friend. We lived only a couple of blocks apart. When he was on leave he came to see me at my summer job at the gas station. I regret til today that I couldn't take off and spend time with him that day. Last time I saw him again until the plane landed at Midland with him from Viet Nam.. I think of him often..

    Dear SP4 Harold Ray Reeves, 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

    Harold was barely able to qualify for the Army. He weighed about 110# and was 5 feet 2 inches tall. He completed basic training at Fort Bliss, Texas and then AIT infantry training at Fort Polk, Louisiana. He was then assigned to Fort Ord, California and remained there for almost a year. As Harold was only seventeen when he completed his training, he was not able to go to Vietnam until after his 18th birthday. He completed the requirements for his GED while in the service.

    In the late summer of 1968 after he turned 18, Harold was levied for Vietnam. He started his tour on September 19, 1968. He was assigned to A Company, 5th Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 199th Light Infantry Brigade (Independent). The unit was operating in and around Fire Support Base 'Stephanie' southwest of Saigon. On December 16, 1968, while on patrol, Harold was wounded by a booby trap and on December 18, 1968, he died from his wounds.

    Rest in peace with the warriors.

    Michael Courtney Quinn was born in San Angelo to Katheryne Rickel and Willie Dee Quinn. His siser, Judith Ann was born a year later. He grew up in San Angelo and the family moved to Circleville, Ohio for a short time and returned to San Angelo for his junior and senior year. He graduated from San Angelo Central High School in 1965. While at Central he was in the Bobcat Marching, Concert and Stage Bands. After graduation, he attended San Angelo College, now Angelo State University. He enlisted in the Navy in the spring of 1966 and completed his recruit training at the U.S. Navy Recruit Training Depot at San Diego, California. He received additional training in gunnery. He began his tour in Vietnam as a member of the U.S. Navy Forces, Vietnam. He was assigned as a gunner with PBR-101. On 24 May, 1967, the Officer in Charge, River Patrol Section 531, three PBR crewmen to include SN Quinn and a Vietnamese national policeman were killed by intense fire from the north bank of the [Ham Luong] river, four miles downstream from Cu Lao Oc. Five other U.S. sailors were wounded during this action. The patrol, composed of PBRs 101 and 106, was attacked by automatic-weapons and recoilless-rifle fire from several Viet Cong positions. The patrol returned the fire. Then a recoilless-rifle round struck the forward .50 caliber mount of PBR 101, killing the gunner, the patrol officer, and the helmsmen. The midships gunner was subsequently killed by machine gun fire as the PBR veered toward the bank out of control. The wounded after gunner finally managed to bring the boat under control and turned clear of the range of fire. The Vietnamese policeman, embarked in PBR 106, was killed when a recoilless-rifle round struck the patrol boat amidships. The effects of the burst also seriously wounded the boat captain and the after gunner, and disabled the craft's port engine. During the engagement armed helicopters and fixed wing aircraft launched strikes against the ambush sites. Subsequent intelligence reports indicated that the air strikes and the PBR fire had killed at least 19 Viet Cong and wounded 36 others. SN Michael C. Quinn was buried with full military honors in the Fairmount Cemetery in San Angelo, Texas.
