A dedication to you're service and sacrifice.

In dedication to you're ultimate sacrifice HM3 Bossman, I have worn you're POW/MIA bracelet for at least the last 20 years and will continue to wear it as it is part of me. If I meet my end before you are found I hope one of my kids will cary on the dedication to your sacrifice until you are found and brought home.

Final Mission of HM3 Peter R. Bossman

CAPT Phillip A. Ducat was a helicopter pilot assigned to HHM 161, Marine Air Group 16. On Sepember 26, 1966, Ducat was assigned a medical evacuation mission in Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam. His co-pilot was 1LT Dean W. Reiter of the same Marine helicopter company and HM3 Peter R. Bossman, a U.S. Navy Corpsman. (NOTE: According to Navy records, Bossman was assigned to HHM 161, MAG 16.) When the helicopter was approximately 22 miles west of Dong Ha, Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam, the aircraft was hit by enemy ground fire, burst into flames and exploded prior to impact with the ground. The crew aboard was killed, and the intense fire of the crash consumed all remains. The crew of the UH-34 was listed as killed, body not recovered.
