Final Mission of EN3 Dewey R. Decker

Final Mission of EN3 Dewey R. Decker
On May 15, 1969, four U.S. Navy Patrol Craft Fast (PCF), also known as Swift Boats, were patrolling the Song Bay Hap River in An Xugen Province, RVN, when they were ambushed by Viet Cong. Two U.S. Navy personnel were killed in the attack and one was wounded. One of the vessels, PCF-51 from Coastal Division 11, was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade launched by the enemy. Crewmen GMG3 Richard W Stindl and EN3 Dewey R. Decker suffered fatal injuries in the assault. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and swiftboats.net]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear EN3 Dewey Russell Decker, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
