Ground Casualty

SP4 Junior Lee Whittle was assigned to the 630th Ordinance Company in Vietnam. On September 24, 1966, he and his unit were swimming in an area off Tuy Hoa. Whittle asked another man in his unit to go in with him as he was not a good swimmer. Both men entered the water, and were about 200 feet from shore when Whittle began calling for help. Whittle's friend swam toward him and was only four or five feet from him when Whittle went under the water. By this time, several people from shore were swimming out to them to help. Neither they nor the friend were able to rescue Whittle. Searches were conducted throughout the rest of the day and night using floodlights, helicopters and boats, but Whittle was never found. Junior Lee Whittle is listed among the missing because his body was never found. [Taken from pownetwork.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Junior Lee Whittle, 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
