Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Jack William Marlowe, 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

Remembering Our Own

Jack William Marlowe
Jack’s productive life unraveled with only thirty days
remaining in his Vietnam tour.
Jack William Marlowe was born to James and Patricia
Marlowe on May 1, 1946. Along with brothers James and
Jay, he was raised and attended school in nearby Gilroy,
California. During his formative years, Marlowe was active
in Little League, the Boy Scouts and the youth activities of
the First Baptist Church in Gilroy. When he entered high
school, he affiliated with DeMolay, a Masonic youth organization
and became a life member.
Upon graduation from Gilroy High School in 1964,
Marlowe enrolled in the two-year business program at
Cabrillo College in Aptos. While in college, he joined the
Circle Y business fraternity. After completing his Associate
of Arts program, he was employed by the County Bank of
Santa Cruz.
In February 1967 Jack Marlowe received his draft notice
and entered the US Army. Following his basic and advanced
infantry training in the summer of 1967, he was assigned to
the 199th Light Infantry Brigade of the Americal Division
in Vietnam.
When the Tet New Year Offensive began in January 1968,
Jack’s unit secured the main infiltration routes into and
around Saigon against Viet Cong attacks. In mid-February,
while in the process of stopping the heavy Viet Cong assaults,
Marlowe was wounded and hospitalized at Cam Ranh Bay
for twenty-one days. Upon his release he rejoined his unit.
On April 16,1968, with less than thirty days remaining
on his Vietnam tour, Specialist Fourth Class Jack William
Marlowe was killed in action from multiple fragmentation
wounds in Long An Province. His body was recovered and
returned to Watsonville for a full military funeral and burial
in Pajaro Valley Memorial Park. His awards include the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
