Final Mission of SGT Harold C. Hunter II

Final Mission of SGT Harold C. Hunter II
SP4 Terry M. Hammond, SP4 Robert L. Weisser, and SGT Harold C. Hunter II were armor crewmen serving with E Troop, 1st Cavalry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On August 30, 1971, they were running a M551 Sheridan tank in tandem with four M113 armored-personnel carriers (APC’s), pulling security on Route 535 in Quang Tin Province, RVN. A full platoon usually comprised nine tracked vehicles, however, on this day the platoon was operating understrength. The security contingent that they relieved had been operating at full-strength with nine vehicles. As soon as they left the area, the understrength platoon was ambushed and overwhelmed by NVA soldiers approximately four miles southwest of Que Son. During the attack, the Sheridan tank suffered three direct hits from rocket-propelled grenades. The explosive warheads on the rockets set off the fuel cells and all the munitions inside the tank. Hammond, Weisser, and Hunter died in the ensuing inferno which destroyed the tank. They were initially listed as Missing in Action until October 1, 1971, when the Army could positively identify their remains.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Harold Clayton HunterII, 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

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
