My Childhood Best Friend - Always in my Heart

So many years have gone by but the hole in my heart just gets bigger and the hurt never goes away. I think about you every day Steve. I know you are okay because we met in one of my dreams and you told me you were okay. The hug you gave me in my dream has given me such peace. I look forward to seeing you again up the road. Best Friends Always, Phil

Final Mission of PVT Stephen E. Dukehart

PVT Stephen E. Dukehart and CPL Duane A. Vogel were riflemen serving with 2nd Platoon, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On December 23, 1966, Dukehart and Vogel, with members of their squad, were tasked with finding a river crossing near the hamlet of Phuoc Duc (2) in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. While trying to affect a crossing, the two Marines were swept away. Vogel’s body was found seven days later in the river and recovered. On January 2, 1967, a Vietnamese civilian alerted Marines to the body of an American on a trail that was carried there by guerillas. As the unit approached the body, they were ambushed by automatic weapons fire and an estimated three snipers. The Marines returned fire and later swept the area, finding nothing. The body, identified as Dukehart, was returned to the Marines' command post for evacuation. The Vietnamese civilian was rewarded 2500 piasters for their help. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembered dear brother...

The photograph of Stephen E. Dukehart was graciously provided by his sister, Teresa Ayala. He was one of two Marines who were swept away by an extremely strong current when their patrol was crossing a stream just before Christmas 1966.
