Final Mission of PFC John E. Davis

PFC John E. Davis was a military policeman serving with the 615th MP Company, 720th MP Battalion, 89th MP Group. On December 13, 1967, the 32nd day of his tour, PFC Davis was on board one of two 15th Engineer Battalion, 9th Infantry Division, riverine airboats conducting a reconnaissance patrol on the Buong River in the 720th MP Battalion Tactical Area of Responsibility in Bien Hoa Province (III Corps Tactical Zone), RVN. Both boats turned off the Buong River into a small cove. When the lead air boat on which Davis was a crew member made a sharp turn to exit the cove, the trailing air boat, unable to take evasive actions, rammed the rear end broadside. The impact occurred where Davis was sitting next to the fan cage causing him severe injuries that resulted in his death. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and 720mpreunion.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC John Edward Davis, 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
