  • I was there when Joe Tucker died.

    Was waiting for the bus when a rocket came over our heads and we hit the ditch. The explosion was close and virtually hit inside a revetment going around a building and someone yelled "a guy was working in there". That is when we found Joe. He never knew what hit him which is a blessing.

    Dear SGT Joe Nathan Tucker, 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

    I met Joe Tucker shortly before his death. He was part of a team building a revetments for my computer building. I can provide some information regarding the circumstances surrounding his unfortunate death. He was helping to protect others!

    Joe, I had never met you before that day. I have never forgotten that day. But for thirty one years I couldn't remember what day it happen March 4. I had felt bad that I didn't know your name. After doing some research I found the day it happen. After that finding your name on this site was easy. I apologize for not having the courage to do it sooner. I had always promised myself that if I ever got back to Phan Rang I would say goodby the right way by knowing your name. I did that this June. I am sorry it took so long. Rest in peace.

    Jim ( Phan Rang 69-70 )
