Will Never Forget You

So much time has passed, yet I can remember how special you always were. You always made me feel like I was important . No matter how boring the conversation could have been with an 8 yr. old, you were attentive!
Thank you for those memories amongst others...time seems to stand still when I think about you and your kindness. Thank you for your service. The ultimate price was paid, but I know you are enjoying the reunion with your family and that you will be taken care of as you have taken care of others.xxx

Attack on FSB C-2 – September 16, 1967

Fire Support Base Charlie Two (FSB C-2) was part of the defense of the Vietnamese DMZ, located about three miles southeast of Con Thien in Quang Tri Province, RVN. The base was established to protect the land route to Con Thien, and particularly the C-2 bridge immediately north of the base. At approximately 2:18 AM on September 16, 1967, a barrage of enemy small arms, 60mm and 82mm mortar, and artillery fire began to hit FSB C-2. The small arms fire reportedly emanated from the north and northwest. Enemy soldiers were observed moving into the perimeter wire carrying satchel charges. The Marines at C-2 returned fire with available weapons, including small arms and artillery defensive fire. The enemy barrage lightened up at 3:15 AM, then began anew about fifteen minutes later with the incoming artillery and mortars hitting outside the perimeter. By 3:35 AM, all incoming fire ceased. Four Marines from F Battery, 2nd Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Marine Division were killed during the attack. They included 1LT Jerry C. Bennett, PFC Robert L. Gable, PFC Frederick Hirschmann III, and 2LT William G. Jerro. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

50 Years ago today

Bill was my buddy the summer of '67 at Ft Sill Artillery School. We were both Marine 2nd lieutenants. I saw him for the last time on Okinawa around the 2nd of September. He flew out on a C130 for Vietnam a couple of days before me. I wished him 'God speed'. At that moment a feeling came over me that I would not see him again. Unfortunately, I was right. 50 years ago today, 16 Sept 2017 Bill paid the ultimate price in service to our great country. RIP my friend.
