Final Mission of PFC William Charles Toth

U.S. Army Private First Class William Charles Toth from Grosse Pointe, Michigan was a Special Forces Qualified Combat Engineer assigned to Detachment A1-332 (To Chau), Delta Company, 5th Special Forces Group, US Army Support Command Vietnam, MACV. According to Vietnam Military Lore, Legends, Shadows and Heroes (Bows, 1997), on the morning of October 27, 1964, he was traveling in a motorized water patrol on the Cambodian border in in Kien Giang Province. As the patrol rounded a bend in the river, approximately forty Viet Cong sprung their ambush. PFC Toth, who was standing on deck, returned fire at the enemy and directed fire at the VC positions. During the firefight, He was hit in the chest with multiple small arms fire and suffered a sucking chest wound. Medical aid was administered, but he died before he could be evacuated.

Heavily influenced by the deaths of Special Forces Soldiers James Gabriel and Wayne Marchand on April 8, 1962, PFC Toth had enlisted in the Army while attending the University of Arizona. He had over two years of service and was 22 years old and unmarried when he died.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC William Charles Toth, 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
