Final Mission of PFC William C. Markle Jr.

SGT Richard G. Godbout served with A Company, 4th Battalion, 23rd Mechanized Infantry Regiment “Tomahawks”, 25th Infantry Division. He died on December 30, 1967 in Cu Chi, Hua Nghia Province, South Vietnam, when the APC (armored personnel carrier) he was traveling on was attacked by NVA soldiers with a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG). SGT Godbout was sitting behind the .50 machine gun on top of the vehicle when it received a direct hit. The attack also killed PFC Scott H. Cook, PFC William C. Markle Jr., and PFC Wylie O. Phillips, who were sitting behind Godbout on top of the APC. SGT Godbout had previously received the Bronze Star for service beyond the call of duty when he volunteered to go on a security mission. He grew up on Petain Street, Manchester, NH, and graduated from the Goffstown High School. He was married to Linda St. Lawrence of Rutland, VT. His story is told in a book written by Jon Hovde, who was a witness to Richard's death in LEFT FOR DEAD, which tells of Hovde's own dramatic experiences in Vietnam." [Taken from issuu.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC William Carl Markle Jr, 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
