Ground Casualty

SGT Charles T. Roeder was a Field Communications Electronics Equipment Mechanic serving with the 87th Engineer Company, 199th Light Infantry Brigade. The 199th’s base of operations was Camp Frenzell-Jones located on Long Binh Post in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. During the second half of 1968, the 199th Light Infantry Brigade conducted Operation Toan Thang II (June 1, 1968 – February 16, 1969) with other Allied units to provide for the defense of Saigon and surrounding provinces. Operations included limited reconnaissance and prevention of North Vietnamese Army rocket fire on the city. The 199th’s 87th Engineer Company split its efforts between supporting combat operations in the field and improving the brigade’s base camp at Long Binh. On the late evening of October 29, 1968, Roeder reportedly ingested a toxic level of the opioid dextropropoxyphene (trade name Darvon). He was transported to the medical dispensary where he was dead on arrival at 11:30 PM. Roeder was 27 years old. His body was transferred to the 93rd Evacuation Hospital and later turned over to Graves Registration personnel for processing and return to the U.S. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, vvmf.org, and “Engineers at War” by Adrian G.

For SGT Charles Thomas ROEDER, USA...another of Beaver Falls's bravest of heroes, who gave his all!!

He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
He was our defender, and he kept us free!
He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
He loved us so, and we should know.
For we loved him so.
Sergeant Roeder, you were the very essence of DUTY!...HONOR!...and COUNTRY! You had been there and done that in Vietnam! You were one brave man who did brave deeds for our America! You had fought for the right, without question or pause! Your name and fame are the BIRTHRIGHT of EVERY American citizen! In your youth and strength...your love and loyalty...you had given all that mortality can give, to defend liberty everywhere! Beaver Falls is very proud of you! You had sacrificed your life so that freedom and justice may live! You had lived up to the code of conduct and chivalry of those who guard this beloved land!...an ideal SO NOBLE that it arousing all of us a sense of pride, and yet, of humility! I strongly and honestly believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I greatly and immensely admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the other two being Walton-on-Thames's own Julie Andrews, England's musical queen, and London's own Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England, would be very proud of your service to America, and the sacrifices you made to keep us and our country free! Well done, Sergeant! Be thou at peace. ARMY STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
