  • Final Mission of EN3 Randall L. Young

    Posted on 3/17/18 - by
    On March 3, 1968, a U.S. Navy LCPL (Landing Craft Personnel [Large]) patrol boat was proceeding west to Bridge Ramp at Dong Ha on the Cua Viet River from Naval Supply Activity at Da Nang with a 1st Platoon searchlight team and boat crew when it was sunk with all hands by an unknown-type explosive device. A total of six personnel were lost in the incident: two members from the 1st Searchlight Battery, PFC Richard S. Ginder and LCPL Alfred W. Speyer; and four persons from the Dong Ha Security Group, Detachment Cua Viet, Naval Support Activity, Da Nang: SN David A. Carli, SN Michael J. Farris, BM3 Gary A. Larsen, and EN3 Randall L. Young. The remains of Carli, Larsen, and Young were not recovered until five days after the sinking. The other Americans were found the same day. [Taken from]

  • Know your brother Mike Young

    I know that Mike your brother was very affected by your death and went to Vietnam after you were killed. He also is a brave man and fought for democracy and followed orders from this country. He also became an army Ranger.

    He stood up at our wedding and is a great friend. I am sure Randall that you in heaven has seen how great of a sacrifice he made for his country also because of you he followed in your footsteps.

    The people of the US did not treat the veterans well when they came home but I myself was very young at the time and always felt that you all did what was asked of you. You followed orders. God Bless you and all that have fought for Freedom and Democracy.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear EN3 Randall Lee Young, 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

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in peace and honor Randy.
