Thank You

Dear Sgt Eugene Dickinson,
Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Your 51st anniversary is next week, so sad. Yesterday was the 43rd anniversary of the last battle of the war. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering Eugene

I grew up with Eugene and his family. Everyone was very proud of Eugene when he entered the Viet Nam war and devastated when we learned of his death. I attended his funeral and will always remember how solemn and sad we all felt. God bless you for fighting for our country.

Final Mission of SGT Eugene H. Dickinson

SGT Eugene H. Dickinson was an infantryman assigned to 1st Platoon, K Troop, 3rd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry. On May 21, 1967, his unit was conducting a normal resupply run along National Route 1 from the Gia Ray Rock Quarry to the junction on National Route 1 and Interprovincial Route 2 when they were ambushed by Viet Cong with RPG’s, recoilless rifle, and small arms. SGT Dickinson was commanding an M113 armored personnel carrier (APC) was attempting to assist other vehicles disabled by the attack when his APC sustained an RPG-2 hit on the right side about midway on the track. SGT Dickinson jumped from the TC hatch over the drivers compartment, seizing the driver’s M-16 and dismounted, taking up a firing position to confront the enemy. His body was later found riddled by small arms fire. His actions earned him the Bronze Star for heroism. [Taken from 11thcavnam.com and coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Eugene Harold Dickinson, 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
