Remembering An American Hero

Dear HM3 Michael Frank Smith, 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

My fellow Corpsman and "shipmate."

I remeber Mike well, we worked side by side during Operation Beaver Cage starting April 27, 1967. Over the two week operation we lost 60 Marines and Navy Corpsman from 1/3 of the 3rd MarDiv and the marine air squadron know at the "ugly Angles" flying their h-34's off teh USS OKINAWA (LPH3), or the Oki Boat as the crew called it. Due to our Corpsman casualties during the operattion (20 including 3 dead) 10 Corpsmen from H&S Company were sent into the field to help augment the sortage until replacements arrive for the line rifle comapanies. Michael was one of the ten, and on the first day of Operation Beau Charger, May 18, 1967 he was killed. I personally handled his body when it was returned to the ship. I felt a deep loss at such a good young guy being killed. There were so many losses during that "cruise" but I always felt Mike's the most. I've never forgotten him, Doc Teal our ship's Medical Officer or any of my shipmates during our time in Viet Nam. It is not an episode in one's life that one can ever forget.
