Final Mission of SP5 Jeffery McClatchy Jr.

SP5 Jeffery McClatchy Jr. was assigned to Forward Operating Base 3 (FOB-3), Command and Control North (CCN), MACV-SOG. On March 1, 1968, SP5 McClatchy was killed by a claymore mine while on security patrol outside of FOB-3. He had been in Vietnam less than a month. His older brother, SSGT Percy W. McClatchy, preceded Jeffery in death in Vietnam on August 13, 1966, when he was shot by a sniper on the final day of a 5-day long-range reconnaissance patrol south of Tuy Hoa in the II Corps Tactical Zone of South Vietnam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP5 Jeffery McClatchy 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
