    A little after midnight on December 28, 1969, Viet Cong sappers attacked the northern perimeter of Alpha Company who were hunkered down in foxholes they dug the afternoon before in the Ho Bo Woods in Binh Duong Province 20 km north of Cu Chi. The three VC sappers snuck up on 3-6’s position and threw satchel charges and hand grenades and fired Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPG) into 3-6’s foxhole and the foxholes to the west. They then opened up with AK-47’s. A total of eight members of the third platoon were killed. They included 2LT John W. Foreman, SGT Robert L. Emery, CPL Terry A. Thornton, CPL Charles E. Merritt, SP4 Danial “Whitey” G. Heiderich, CPL Allen R. Rader, CPL Otis Carthage Jr., and CPL Roger D. Cox. [Taken from]

    Dear CPL Otis Carthage Jr, 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

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
