Final Mission of SP4 Carl T. Anthony

The following is a personal recollection of SP4 Anthony: “I was tight with three guys killed on March 21, 1967: SP4 Joseph Champion (“Champ”), SP4 Hayzell C. Turner (“Turner”) and SP4 Carl T. Anthony (“Amp”). Turner and Amp were like brothers and Turner had a lisp and could not pronounce the "th" in Anthony, it came out “Ampony,” hence the nickname "Amp". I understand that they found Turner's (a black guy from Mississippi) body draped over Amp's (a white guy from Louisiana). I was medevacked out of the field about March 15, 1967, I got hit on the head with a concussion grenade in the battle of March 12th, when I got to the hospital they found out I also had malaria and God spared me almost assuredly being killed on the 21st, as I was with the 3rd platoon.” (Narrative by Jim Harris) SP4 Turner’s Bronze Star citation - Specialist Four Turner distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on March 21, 1967, while serving with as a Fire Team Leader in the 3rd Platoon of C,2/35th Infantry, during a search and destroy operation. When his platoon became engaged with a numerically superior NVA force, Specialist Four Turner with complete disregard for his own safety, moved through the intense hostile fire, positioning his men. It was during this brilliant display of leadership that he was fatally wounded. Specialist Four Turner's gallant actions and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Carl Thomas Anthony, 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
