Final Mission of SGT Vincent J. Musco

SGT Vincent J. Musco, SP4 Bobby Riddle, and PFC Donald R. Barrett were military policemen assigned to 1st Platoon, 23rd M.P. Company, Americal Division. On August 18, 1969, they were escorts in a jeep as part of a military convoy with SP4 Riddle the driver, SGT Musco the gunner, and SP4 Riddle a passenger in the jeep. As the convoy moved along highway QL-1 about 4 miles northwest of Duc Pho, a land mine was detonated near the jeep. SGT Musco and PFC Barrett were killed in the blast. SP4 Riddle was medically evacuated to a military hospital where he later expired. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Vincent James Musco, 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
