    SP4 Terry R. Albright was an Armor Crewman serving with B Troop, 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 25th Infantry Division. On October 11, 1970, SP4 Albright was at a forward fire base in Tay Ninh Province, RVN, visiting his B Troop buddies. Albright had hitched a ride from the 25th Infantry’s main base at Cu Chi Base Camp to say goodbye as he was returning to the U.S. While at the firebase, Albright was killed by another GI who was high on drugs. The perpetrator, PFC Alfonso Williams, reportedly fired on Albright with an M16 rifle in a drug haze over a dispute regarding a yellow towel. Williams unloaded a magazine clip on full automatic, striking Albright eighteen times from his thigh to his neck. He died almost instantly. Some of his friends who were in the field on patrol heard over the radio net about a “dustoff” back at the fire base and wondered what happened. It wasn’t until they returned that evening when their commanding officer informed all the platoon leaders of the incident who in turn informed the troops. By that point Albright was gone and they would never see him again, and Williams had been removed for his own safety. A ceremony was held for Albright a few days later at Cu Chi Base Camp with a service conducted by both a Protestant and Roman Catholic chaplain.

    Dear SP4 Terry Robert Albright, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Terry was my late husband's buddy in Nam. Rudy was with Terry when he was shot and till the day Rudy died, he did not know why the soldier didn't shoot him also!
    It's so sad that Terry lost his life so young. Rest in Peace!
    Rudy passed away in Dec. 2011, I pray they are together again in Heaven.
