Final Mission of SP4 John C. Wells

SP4 John C. Wells served with Detachment B-50, Project Delta, Command and Control South (CCS), MACV-SOG. The following is an excerpt from his Silver Star citation describing his final mission at Khe Sanh on March 11, 1968: “When the area was brought under siege by numerous North Vietnamese Army units, volunteers were asked to man the outpost and SP4 Wells courageously requested duty there. After his arrival, he repeatedly volunteered for security and reconnaissance patrols, and, each time, was placed in command, he demonstrated fearless and professional leadership. Details were extremely hazardous because of continuous incoming enemy rocket and mortar rounds. While performing one of these dangerous assignments, SP4 Wells was struck and mortally wounded by fragments of an exploding rocket.” (He died ten days later.) NOTE: SP4 Wells was on his third tour of duty when he died at the age of 19. His first tour began July 23, 1966 when he was 17 years-old. [Taken from virtualwall.org]
