  • Final Mission of SP4 Charles E. Bovinette Jr.

    Posted on 5/27/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    PFC Daniel J. Hohman, SP4 Charles E. Bovinette Jr., and SP4 James K. Schmoll were infantrymen serving with D Company, 1st Battalion, 46th Infantry, 198th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On February 19, 1971, their unit was patrolling in the vicinity of Hill 463 in the Nam Ninh River Valley, Quang Tin Province, RVN. That evening they found a suitable place for their night defensive position (NDP), and dug fighting holes for the evening. The night passed quietly and the next day they resumed patrolling. Later that day, they were ambushed when a command-detonated booby-trap was exploded, killing Hohman and Bovinette. Schmoll was also killed by small arms fire in the same engagement. Hohman was posthumously promoted to corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by John Harbottle at vvmf.org]

    Dear SP4 Charles E Bovinette Jr, 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
