Final Mission of PFC Harry A. Kelley

On July 15, 1967, elements of the 919th Engineer Company, 11th Armored Cavalry, were tasked with repairing a bridge on National Highway QL-1 near Soui Cat that had been washed out by monsoon rains. During the course of the road march to the work site, an enemy claymore mine was detonated against the Command Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle (ACAV) resulting in the death of the Company Commander, CPT Donald J. Crocker, FSG Everett A. Herritz, PFC Harry A. Kelley, and PFC Donald Paskowitz. After a search of the immediate area failed to disclose any enemy soldiers, the remaining elements of the Company pushed on to complete their mission in spite of their loss. The following day the repairs were completed, and this vital supply route was once again open to traffic. Crocker was subsequently awarded the Bronze Star medal in connection with this mission. He was also posthumously promoted to Major. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and Unit History, 919th Engineer Company (Armored) 13 April 1966 - 31 December 1967 at vva.vietnam.ttu.edu]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Harry Allen Kelly, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
