On January 19, 1969, PBR-8142, a river patrol boat from River Division 554, Task Force 116, U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam, was on a routine patrol in the Dong Tien Canal, one mile east of Tram Chim in Kien Phong Province, RVN, when it was hit by a command detonated mine, B-40 rockets, rifle grenades, and heavy automatic weapons fire. Two sailors, SN Stephen W. McKinley and GMG3 David C. Hall, were fatally wounded in the attack. Another crewman, SN Paul A.

Remembering a Classmate

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. R.I.P. brave warrior Great fun we had in study hall, Paul, those were great times.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SN Paul August Holtz, 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
