  • Final Mission of PFC Richard J. Anasiewicz

    Posted on 11/15/17 - by
    PFC Richard J. Anasiewicz was a rifleman serving with First Platoon, Company M, Third Battalion, Fifth Marines. On July 18, 1966, during a search and destroy operation in the Quang Tri Province, RVN, PFC Anasiewicz’s platoon came under intense semi-automatic and machine gun fire. He immediately began firing from the hip at an enemy machine gun position, effectively reducing its fire. Then he raced to the aid of two wounded Marines, directing one out of the line of fire, and, disregarding his own personal safety, carried the other Marine to a safe location. Still under intense fire, he went to the aid of another wounded Marine and was moving back with him to his position when he was mortally wounded by a sniper. PFC Anasiewicz’s unfaltering courage in the face of extreme danger and his devotion to duty upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country. [Taken from PFC Anasiewicz’s Silver Star citation]

    Dear PFC Richard Joseph Anasiewicz, 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
