We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Final Mission of PFC Clifford M. Gibson

LCPL George M. Couch and PFC Clifford M. Gibson were riflemen assigned to F Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines. On August 16, 1969, they were on a search and clear patrol in the vicinity of Phu Loc Six, Quang Nam Province, RVN, when they came under hostile small arms fire. PFC Gibson was fatally wounded in the attack. LCPL Couch was wounded in the neck. The injury rendered him paralyzed, unable to use either his arms or legs. He was medically evacuated to the United States where he spent about a year in a Memphis, Tennessee veterans hospital. After being released, he returned to his parents’ new home which had been especially built with ramps instead of stairs to accommodate his electric wheelchair. On September 8, 1973, four years after being wounded, he died at his home in Morristown, TN. He was 23 years-old. In November 1984, his name was added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Clifford Michael Gibson, 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
