Thank You

Dear PFC Arthur Reinhardt, Thank you for your service as a Heavy Vehicle Driver. The 54th anniversary of the start of your tour just passed. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Today is the 57th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

First Convoy

He was the last truck to leave that morning grinning ear to ear his first ride. I know that night and still many nights and days I remember that grin. It bothers me to this day may he rest in peace. When some one reads this say a prayer PLEASE

unlike Artie during my tour in Nam I was never in the wrong place at the wrong time. but the time and the faces of the past never fade, remembering how enthusiast he was to send tapes home. Ididn't drive state side or in nam so i was assigned to the gun trucks. i know artie just had a birthday Nam has been a heavy burden in my heart my whole life and cannot be compared to the heavy hearts of his family,sweetheart, friends throughout the years i am so sorry for your loss and ashamed of my fears. to all who knew Artie may you all be Blessed this up coming Holiday Season. Billy D.

Final Mission of PFC Arthur W. Reinhardt

On September 2, 1967, an eastbound convoy of 90 trucks of the 523rd Transportation Company was returning to An Khe from Pleiku under the protection of only two gun jeeps with M- 60 machine guns. Convoy drivers were lightly armed with rifles and only four or five 20 round-magazines of ammunition. At 1855 hours that evening, as the convoy snaked around a series of curves along highway QL-19, an NVA company struck the convoy. They disabled the lead gun jeep with a 57mm recoilless rifle round and detonated a claymore mine mounted on sticks level with the driver’s head. Simultaneously, the enemy immobilized a tanker truck in the convoy and trapped the lead convoy. Mines on boards placed across the road were detonated in front of the next three trucks behind disabled lead jeep. They also sprung a secondary ambush on the other half of the convoy, setting a tanker on fire. An estimated 60 to 80 enemy soldiers dug in about 30 yards up a hill began firing down on the trucks. Reinforcements, helicopter gunships, and the late arrival of a C-47 “Spooky” gunship would relieve pressure on the besieged convoy. A total of eight Americans were killed in the ambush, including SP5 James M. Bagshaw, SSGT Claude L. Collins, PFC Roy L. Greensage, PFC William A. Gunter Jr., PFC Lloyd R. Hughey, PFC Arthur W. Reinhardt, SP4 Ronald W. Simmons, and PFC Robert L. Stebner Jr. Seventeen other Americans were wounded. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vietnam-guntrucks.com]
