Remember to save for them a place inside of you, and save one backward glance when you are leaving, for the places they can no longer go...

I was there that day

I was a member of Lima Co. with Lee on Sept. 7th, 1967. We were both Squad Leaders, although in different squads. We were each from the “Chicago area” in Illinois and knew each other casually. On this day, Lee’s squad was Point, my squad having been Point on the ambush just 2 1/2 weeks earlier on Aug. 21st when we also took casualties. Those were rough times and we were neck deep in combat every day. Lee was always in a good mood and showed a calm leadership ability not often seen in others. He is missed and remembered every day, even some 54 years later.

Final Mission of SGT Lee B. Jarvis

SP4 James M Wilson was an Administrative Specialist serving with G Battery, 65th Artillery. At 10:10 AM on September 7, 1967, SP4 Wilson was part of a resupply convoy of nine vehicles on Highway QL-9 in Quang Tri Province, RVN, enroute from Thom Son Lam to Ca Lu when they were ambushed by the North Vietnamese Army a half mile northwest of Ca Lu Airfield. A Marine reaction force from India Company 3/3 consisting of a command group and two rifle platoons and a 60mm mortar section was dispatched from Ca Lu to assist the beleaguered convoy. India Company had to fight their way to the ambush site, encountering dozens of NVA fighting holes along the way. At 11:30 AM, Lima Company 3/3 arrived from Camp Carroll and moved towards the ambushed convoy. Fighting raged for 4-5 hours with artillery and air support accompanying the Marine reaction forces. Enemy resistance was considered moderate throughout the battle. The contact resulted in 65 American casualties including five Marine and one Army killed in action. The lost personnel included SP4 Wilson (posthumously promoted to Sergeant); from India Company 3/3: 2LT Noel A. John and SGT John R. Sibilly; from Lima Company 3/3: SGT Lee B. Jarvis and LCPL Albert C. Lawson; and from Headquarters & Service Company 3/3 (embedded with Kilo Company): LCPLTony L. V. White. Forty-one of the wounded required evacuation. Another Marine company from Ca Lu was sent to retrieve the battle-damaged vehicles.
