Childhood friend

Joe was a good friend, we grew up together and I still remember him today. We used to play baseball together with all the neighborhood kids. He is truly missed.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Jose Louis Vieras, 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

Final Mission of CPL Jose L. Vieras

CPL Jose L. Vieras and SGT Richard D. Kosar were members of B Company, 6/31st. On May 10, 1968, they were ambushed while moving through a small reservoir trying to get through a wire fence near Gia Dinh when the enemy opened fire with small arms. While returning fire, CPL Vieras’ M-16 rifle jammed, necessitating the use of a cleaning rod to clear the jam. At the same time the platoon’s medic passed him a cleaning rod, their position was raked with AK-47 fire, fatally wounding CPL Vieras. SGT Kosar was also killed during the attack. CPL Vieras was remembered by a fellow soldier as a nice person, always talking about getting back home to San Jose, CA and getting married to his girlfriend. [Taken from 6thofthe31st.com]
