Hero, Not. More like a coward

How can anyone call this man a hero who should be thanked for his service? He walked in an office and murdered his unarmed NCOIC and then committed suicide. He was weak and it makes me sick that his name is associated with Clarence E Lowder. A man who dedicated his life to the service of his country. A man who served in WWII, Korea, and volunteered to go to Vietnam even though he had more than enough years to retire from the Army.

Ground Casualty

FSGT Clarence E. Lowder was a Field Artillery Senior Sergeant serving with Headquarters & Headquarters Battery (HHB), Division Artillery, 25th Infantry Division. SP4 Enoch ‘Doc’ Hampton was a medical NCO serving with the same unit. After about two months with the unit at Cu Chi Base Camp, FSGT Lowder, started harassing SP4 Hampton, about his Afro haircut, telling him to get it cut. Hampton’s hair was no longer than an inch and a half — within Army regulations — but Lowder kept pushing him to trim it. On the evening of September 8, 1969, while in the mess hall, Hampton said that Lowder had “his thing,” the book and the law, and that he, Hampton, had his — an M16 rifle. Hampton said he was going to the orderly room to see the first sergeant. “Either I’ll come out alone,” he said, “or neither of us is coming out.” There was a clerk was working in the orderly room when Hampton came through the doorway. The barrel of Hampton’s M16 was pointed downward, his feet planted firmly apart. Slowly he raised the barrel and fired a full clip into Lowder. Then Hampton walked out. The captain screamed, “Stop him!” Outside, Hampton ran for a bunker. Suddenly, there were about forty MPs and other men with shotguns and submachine guns running after him, shouting, “Get him, kill him!” The MPs cornered Hampton in an empty bunker. But Hampton was armed; nobody wanted to go in after him. It was a standoff. Taking up positions around the bunker, the MPs ordered him to surrender. As white and black troops started running out of their huts and bunkers towards Hampton, they were blocked by armed MPs. Then a single shot sounded in Hampton’s bunker. One MP started to make a move for the bunker, but was stopped by black troops. Two black soldiers went in. Hampton was found dead. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and theanarchistlibrary.org]
