Final Mission of HT2 Gary L. Boyce

On December 19, 1972, while conducting a gunfire mission, the USS Goldsborough (DDG 20) was hit by enemy coastal artillery counter-battery fire north of the DMZ. The shore battery put a hole five feet wide through an upper deck of the ship. Two sailors, HTC Donald A. Dix and BM1 Robert M. Dow, were killed, and six were injured in the incident. One of the six injured, HT2 Gary L. Boyce, was medically evacuated to the United States Air Force Hospital at Clark Air Base in the Philippines, where he died January 1, 1973, from sepsis due to renal failure and traumas as a result of the wounds he received.

To My Big Brother

I was so young when you left us as a hero giving service to our country, but I remember so much about how you touched all our lives. Our visit to the wall in Washington was so moving and is an amazing tribute to all who served and sacrificed for our freedom. Your family will never forget and always honor your memory.
