honoring you.....

Great sadness fills our hearts today
As pipes and drums, in slow march play.
A comrade’s fallen by the way,
And now we say goodbye.

This hero to the very end
Was more than just a casual friend,
Who would a stranger’s life defend,
And now we say goodbye

But we shall cherish, all our days,
The character this life portrayed
With sacrifice so freely made,
And now we say goodbye.

The hand salute, o’er Stars and Stripes,
And distant skirl of highland pipes,
Bid last farewell with hero’s rights,
And now we say goodbye.

While here on Earth, you gave your best.
Now in the Master’s arms you rest.
T’is by your memory we are blessed.
And now we say goodbye.

Final Mission of SP4 James M Wilson

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.
