honoring you.....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

First casualty witnessed

I was a Forward Air Controller assigned to a company of 3/3 in a remote outpost west of Da Nang. This was a small unit (platoon size?) search & destroy foray...for what reason I do not recall. Objective unknown / questionable in hindsight. VC were well concealed in tallgrass and trees across the small river. I called in the medivac when Lance Corporal Webb was hit. I recall using my pistol in the action.

Final Mission of LCPL Michael R. Webb

On January 7, 1966, a 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines patrol was scouting along the eastern side of the Song Yen River, two miles south of the Tuy Loan Bridge in Quang Nam Province, RVN, when they were fired on by an estimated fifteen Viet Cong (VC) positioned on the other side. At 11:28 AM, the patrol reported receiving an estimated 200 rounds of automatic and semi-automatic weapons fire. The Americans returned fire with small arms, 81mm mortar, and 40mm (M79) rounds. They were supported by an air strike performed by a UH-1E helicopter. The VC broke contact with the Marines unable to pursue because of the river barrier. One patrol member, rifleman LCPL Michael R. Webb, was fatally wounded in the engagement after being struck in the chest by gunfire; one other Marine was wounded.
