Final Mission of SGT John R. Sibilly

SP4 James M Wilson was an Administrative Specialist serving with G Battery, 65th Artillery. At 10:10 AM on September 7, 1967, SP4 Wilson was part of a resupply convoy of nine vehicles on Highway QL-9 in Quang Tri Province, RVN, enroute from Thom Son Lam to Ca Lu when they were ambushed by the North Vietnamese Army a half mile northwest of Ca Lu Airfield. A Marine reaction force from India Company 3/3 consisting of a command group and two rifle platoons and a 60mm mortar section was dispatched from Ca Lu to assist the beleaguered convoy. India Company had to fight their way to the ambush site, encountering dozens of NVA fighting holes along the way. At 11:30 AM, Lima Company 3/3 arrived from Camp Carroll and moved towards the ambushed convoy. Fighting raged for 4-5 hours with artillery and air support accompanying the Marine reaction forces. Enemy resistance was considered moderate throughout the battle. The contact resulted in 65 American casualties including five Marine and one Army killed in action. The lost personnel included SP4 Wilson (posthumously promoted to Sergeant); from India Company 3/3: 2LT Noel A. John and SGT John R. Sibilly; from Lima Company 3/3: SGT Lee B. Jarvis and LCPL Albert C. Lawson; and from Headquarters & Service Company 3/3 (embedded with Kilo Company): LCPLTony L. V. White. Forty-one of the wounded required evacuation. Another Marine company from Ca Lu was sent to retrieve the battle-damaged vehicles.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Tony Lee Van White, 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
