honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Final Mission of PFC James L. Dillard III

Long range reconnaissance patrols, or “Lurps,” were small, heavily armed, long range reconnaissance teams that patrolled deep into enemy-held territory. PFC James L. Dillard III served with E Company, 50th Infantry, a Long-Range Patrol unit of the 9th Infantry Division, operating in the delta region of South Vietnam. Fifteen minutes before midnight on September 13, 1968, his Lurp team was inserted near the My Tho and Nam Thon Rivers in Dinh Tuong Province, RVN. After conducting an unremarkable patrol with no enemy contacts, the team requested exfiltration at 5:50 AM the following morning. While they were transferring from a flat-bottomed sampan to an extraction vessel in the middle of the Nam Thon River, Dillard slipped into the water and was drowned. A Navy SEAL scuba team was requested to help find Dillard. His body was later recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and ichiban1.org]
