Ground Casualty

PFC Richard J. Cordova was a combat engineer serving with B Company, 14th Engineer Battalion. In the spring of 1969, PFC Cordova was stationed at Camp Evans in Quang Tri Province, RVN. His unit had a section of M342A2 5-ton dump trucks that carried a variety of materials for the many projects the engineers were assigned. Near Camp Evans was a stream the crews sometimes brought their trucks and used their Army-issued “pots” (helmets) to wash the vehicles. On April 27, 1969, Cordova and his driver were cleaning their dump truck at the stream. While working on separate sides of the truck, the driver noticed Cordova hadn’t made any noise for a while. He went around the vehicle and reportedly found him floating face down in the water, inexplicably drowned. A memorial service was held a few days later at Camp Evans in his honor in front of the Orderly Room in the company area.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Richard Joe Cordova, 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
