Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Harmon Joseph Bove Jr, 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

I will never forget you!

I will never forget arriving in An Hoa and meeting you. We talked so much about baseball. I remember you telling me you were drafted by the Houston Astros as a catcher. As you knew I was a catcher too at one time. You brought two gloves and a baseball with you to Vietnam. We played catch right there by the tents in the rear area of An Hoa one day before heading out to the bush. I will never forget that moment. We also had the same MOS 0331.

I will never forget that tragic day in the Arizona Territory but also seeing your face while laying on that stretcher as you were choppered off. As the chopper banked I kept looking up and there you were giving the peace sign I am sure to all of us but I felt like you were looking right at me. I will remember that for the rest of my life. You were one awesome Marine. Everyday I sign on to my computer I still look at your face as a picture of you in An Hoa rests under the glass on the top of my desk. Along with that picture are Doc Mike Weems comments.

In 2006 Bo I saw and touched your name on the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C. Some day I will see you again and we will play catch again. God Bless you, all of your family, all others who have "Fallen" and those who are not only still literally suffering from their wounds but also in many different ways as a result of their service in Vietnam. Rest In Peace brother.

Semper Fi,
Tony Brambilla

Group Photo Provided by P. Gary Burkett

Dear Harmon, Commandant MCL 834 P. Gary Burkett, a Radio Operator at the time you sacrificed your life, and who had to take the report of your death, furnished this group photo of Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines and you are at the end on the right with your helmet on. So to further honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for our country I am uploading this additional photo. You will be honored each and every year on your birthday and your photo will proudly be displayed when the Education Center is completed. Harmon, you are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war. God Bless You, Harmon, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
