Final Mission of PFC Hector D. Oyola

PFC Hector D. Oyola was an infantryman serving with B Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On August 12, 1970, PFC Oyola was boarding a resupply helicopter in a combat zone in Quang Ngai Province, RVN, when the aircraft was fired on with small arms from a hostile force. The helicopter was forced to suddenly lift off, causing Oyola to fall from the aircraft. Apart from injuries he received in the fall, Oyola was also reportedly wounded by the enemy fire. He was admitted to a military hospital where he expired on August 14, 1970. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Hector David Oyola, 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
