Final Mission of PFC Clarence B. Cunningham

PFC Clarence B. Cunningham was a rifleman serving with 3rd Platoon, D Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, 1st Marine Division. At 10:35 PM on October 24, 1968, PFC Cunningham was with 3rd Platoon in a night ambush position, two miles southwest of Nam-O Bridge in Quang Nam Province, RVN, when the enemy tossed nine Chicom grenades at their location. They next opened fire with AK-47’s, at which time the Marines returned fire. During the engagement, Cunningham was killed after suffering fatal shrapnel wounds to the head. The Marines also lost one Kit Carson scout killed, and two other Marines were wounded. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and Command Chronology, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, October 1968]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Clarence Beno Cunningham, 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
