A Commander Never Gets Over The Loss of His Men

I am John (Jack) Marshall, Private Linville's company comnamder. My West Point Class is having a ceremony at the wall on May 6, 2018. I will be spending time that day at Private Linville's place of honor on the wall. When the mortar attack struck, Private Linville, and Lt. Richard Stube, who was also killed, were standing only a few feet from me. I was wounded and evacuated to a hospital ship, where I suffered from deep guilt that somehow I survived, but Private Linville and Lt. Stube did not. That guilt is common for military commanders who lose soldiers under their command. I will never truly get over the loss. I hope that his family are doing well and know that his courage and dedication will never be forgotten by me and others in the company.

Survivor of this event

My name is David Slone. Contrary to some official accounts, a Ranger - me - survived this crash Any family member or soldier who was present that day may contact me at [email protected]

He is forever in my thoughts from that tragic day, Sept. 20, 1970. It is a trick of fate that I am here and he is there.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Michael Thomas Linville, 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
