    My Father. I will forever miss you, unfortunately I never got to know you. I can only hope I have been a good representation of you, and that I have taught my children to love and live a good life, as I expect you would have taught me. You taught me Sacrifice, and value in ideals like Freedom, and family. Mom is now in heaven with you, and I miss you both greatly.
    Thank you for your sacrifice, and I thank you for my life. I may feel sad and lonely now today, but you have also given me great joys in feeling happy and loved as well. I also Volunteered in the Navy, though it didn't pan out for me, but I respect and admire you for your integrity and commitment. Thank you
    and to all our fallen Vets, I wish you all God Rest and forever fair winds.

  • Final Mission of EN2 Francis D. Campbell

    Cua Viet is the name most often used to describe the Naval Support Activity Detachment immediately adjacent on the western border of the U.S. Marine Amtrac base called Camp Kistler, located at the mouth of the Cua Viet River, bordering the Gulf of Tonkin. It is 3 1/2 miles south of the southern boundary of the DMZ. The mission of the Amtracs and patrol boats is to deny enemy access to the Cua Viet River and protect the flow of supplies to Dong Ha. The Dong Ha River Security Group patrols had five areas which were code named One Lima through Five Lima. On January 16, 1969, a mine in the Two Lima patrol area sank patrol boat YFU-62. Its back was broken by the explosion and resulted in the deaths of eight crewmen. The lost crewmen in the blast included EN2 Francis D. Campbell, EM2 Wendell A. Morrison, SM2 David L. Holdredge, CS2 Kenneth M. Russell, RMSN Milton J. Worrell, NFN Erik N. Rudziak, FN Alfred Bauer, and FN Edward E. Stockewell Jr. FN Bauer had been scheduled to rotate back to the U.S. three days after his death. [Taken from lcplriversecurity.com]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear EN2 Francis Duncan Campbell, 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
