Vern, I first met you as a young 18 year old boy in the spring of 1959. You were my platoon Sgt. Co. B, 187th inf. 82nd ABN. Div. thru your guidance and friendship I became a man. Later on Okinawa I remember the last conversation we had. I often think about you and the influence you had on me. Thank you. Until we meet again.

Final Mission of SFC Verndean A. Brockman

SFC Verndean A. Brockman was an indirect fire infantryman assigned to Detachment A1-223B (Bu Prang), 1st Special Forces Group, U.S. Army Special Forces Vietnam, MAAGV. On November 16, 1963, SFC Brockman was killed in a convoy ambushed by an estimated 100 Viet Cong along a road a few miles from the Cambodian border in the jungled Central Highlands about 116 miles north of Saigon. During the attack, SFC Brockman was struck in the head by VC bullets. Two friendly Vietnamese soldiers riding in the same truck as Brockman were also injured. The convoy was proceeding along Route 14 from the mountain tribal village of Bu Prang to Gia Nghia on its way to mount operations against the VC when it was attacked about four miles south of the town of Tuy Duc. The VC apparently used only small arms and automatic weapons during the ambush. There was no report of mine explosions under the vehicles. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SFC Verndean Arthur Brockman, 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
