honoring you.....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

Attack on LZ Oasis – October 30, 1970

Landing Zone Oasis was a U.S. Army base located on the south side of National Route QL-19, fifteen miles southwest of Pleiku city in Pleiku Province, RVN. The base was first established in 1965 by the 1st Cavalry Division for the Battle of Ia Drang. In the fall of 1970, the base was occupied by 6th Battalion, 14th Artillery and elements of B Battery, 4th Battalion, 60th Artillery. At 1:33 AM on October 30, 1970, under a dark and moonless night sky, Oasis began receiving 82mm mortar and rocket-propelled grenade fire which was followed by a ground assault by an undetermined-sized North Vietnamese Army (NVA) force. Enemy sappers breached the perimeter and succeeded in putting out of action two M110 8” self-propelled howitzers and causing significant destruction around the base. Close-quarters fighting was reported throughout the installation as the American defenders traded rifle fire with the rampaging NVA. By the time the enemy withdrew at 6:50 AM, three U.S. were dead and twenty were wounded. The lost personnel included (from 6th Bn,14th Arty) SP4 John P. Musich, SP4 Carl E. Owens, and SP4 Gary W. Richardson. Enemy losses were put at fourteen killed. On one dead NVA a detailed map of all the building locations was found. A later assessment of the attack found serious deficiencies in fire base security planning indicating that preventive measures could have considerably lessoned the damage inflicted by the sapper attack.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 John Paul Musich, 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
