Final Mission of EN1 Michael H. Painter

The USCGC Point Arden (WPB-82309) was an 82-foot cutter based at Da Nang, RVN, during its assignment in Vietnam. On August 9, 1969, while conducting a harassment and interdiction mission using the cutter's mortar, engineer EN1 Michael H. Painter was killed by a misfired round in the mortar. The Executive Officer, LTJG Michael W. Kirkpatrick, was critically injured and evacuated to the 67th Evacuation Hospital at Qui Nhon where he died the following day.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear EN1 Michael Harris Painter, 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

We Love You Dad

Dad,
Grandpa and Grandma have finally joined you and uncle Daryl, bringing them peace at long last. I've always felt you looking over me throughout my career in the Coast Guard and done my best to make you proud.
Love You,
Brian
