Final Mission of SP4 John W. Cook Jr.

At approximately one-half hour past midnight on February 29, 1968, a convoy composed of sixteen Philco-Ford vehicles and four military police jeeps was ambushed on Highway 316, approximately one mile south of Thu Duc in Gia Dinh Province, RVN, by an unknown enemy force. Friendly losses were two killed (one U.S. military and one Local National, nine wounded (five U.S. military and four Local Nationals), five trucks destroyed, and two trucks and two jeeps damaged. The lost American was SP4 John W. Cook Jr., a driver who suffered fatal burns while at the wheel of one of the convoy vehicles. He was one of two John William Cooks who died on February 29, 1968 (Leap Year Day) from injuries sustained in combat in Vietnam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 John William Cook 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

Curt Carter
