    Jeff and I met at the receiving station in Boston on 7/7/64. We became friends immediately, that's the kind of guy he was. We were always together, his name began with Ty and mine with Tu, our service numbers were one digit apart. We had great times in boot camp. He always kept me laughing. I forget exactly when it was that my mother told me that he had been killed in action.

    Jeff and I went through training together at Camp lajune NC. We landed in Viet Nam on 29 May 66 and took a jeep from the airport in Denang out to our company's outpost.

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear HM3 Jeffrey Gordon Tyne, 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 (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne)
