  • Ground Casualty

    Posted on 10/18/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    PO3 Stanley C. Campbell was serving with the MCB-7 Sea Bees at Phu Bai when his platoon drew early sentry duty on August 25, 1966. Just before daybreak, PO3 Campbell confided to those near him he had to relieve himself and was going behind some nearby bushes. Staying low, he quickly moved out of sight and disappeared into the misty darkness. Ten minutes later, Campbell’s squad heard a desperate voice yell “halt!,” followed by a blast of M-14 rifle fire. When they got to Campbell, he was already gone. An M-14 round had pierced his heart. A new man was on sentry duty on the outer perimeter, and his nerves were on edge. He had yelled “Halt” three times with no response. For whatever reason, Campbell kept moving forward in the dark, and the sentry fired. No one knows what Campbell’s intentions were. He may have been playing a prank on his buddies and moving in to scare them. No one will ever know for sure. [Taken from toovia.com]

    Stoney, you were a tragic victim of 'friendly fire' that morning on the MCB-7 defensive line in Phu Bai. I will always remember how awful we all felt in the comm bunker during the incident. Rest in Peace my friend. Thank you for you service and sacrifice. You are gone but you will never be forgotten.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/25/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SWE3 Stanley Claus 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
