Thank You

Dear Captain Bernard McDermott, Thank you for your service as an Infantry Officer. Your 80th birthday was 5 days ago, happy birthday. (6 days ago was the 51st anniversary of the start of your tour.) Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Yesterday was Purple Heart Day. Time passes quickly, but our world needs help. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Ground Casualty

On the morning of September 6, 1969, the 3rd Military Police Battalion cantonment two miles southwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN, came under an enemy mortar attack, receiving approximately one hundred 82mm mortar rounds. The barrage killed four Marines and wounded 40 more. The lost Marines included CAPT Bernard A. McDermott III, LCPL Richard E. Perez, PVT David Rivera, and PVT Willie J. Washington. Rivera and Washington were prisoners serving special court martial sentences at the III MAF Brig Compound when the mortar attack occurred.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Bernard A Mcdermott III, 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
