Where do we find such men?

Where do we find such men?
LCpl Harold Baylor became my radioman after I took over as the Platoon Commander of 1st Platoon,Lima Co.,3rd Bn, 27th Marines in March,1968.We were together night and day and became very close.In early May ,because of his rank, I had to give him up to become a Fire Team Leader in a rifle squad. On May 18th during Operation Allenbrook on Goi Noi Island, 15 miles South of Danang by the hamlet of Le Bac(2) at 15.858ºN,108.21ºE, we advanced up from a dry riverbed toward some high grass, an open area, and then dense trees. We heard shots and thought it was simply a sniper in the trees off to our left. I was on a footpath next to a drainage ditch leading into the trees. I told Baylor to follow the path into the trees and then sweep left to flush the sniper. He got as far as the treeline and was shot point blank by an NVA soldier in a spider hole. The trees were actually on a hill containing bunkers reinforced with railroad ties and occupied by regular hard core NVA soldiers who were waiting quietly for us to get closer. The ensuing battle went into the night. The next day I went forward and found Harold's body. I was devastated. Although it's been over 50 years,I still think of him every day. He was a great kid and a brave Marine.
Semper Fi, Marine. I miss you.
