    MM1 Joseph A. Albrecht was trained as a navy machinist. He was assigned to Task Force 116, Detachment A, Seal Team 2, U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam. Small detachments of Navy SEALs operated routinely in Viet Cong-controlled areas gathering intelligence. On August 2, 1968, MM1 Albrecht was participating in a combat sweep in Chau Doc Province, RVN, when he detonated a booby-trapped grenade. Albrecht suffered massive internal injuries and was evacuated to the sick bay facilities aboard the barracks ship USS Colleton (APB-36). Despite emergency life-saving treatment, Albrecht succumbed to his injuries. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and wikipedia.org]

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear MM1 Joseph Alfred Albrecht, sir,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you. Curt Carter
