An AMERICAN HERO, who gave it all including his life "REST IN PEACE. HERO"

LCpl. Youngkin serving with Company E, 2d Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st MARIV (Rein) FMF.
During Operation PRAIRIE on a sweep to the northwest to their objectives in the vicinity of the Razorback, Company E and F engaged the NVA and were hit with heavy automatic weapons, rifle fire and RPG's (Rocket Propelled Grenades). Company F had four men wounded and withdrew from their advance requesting artillery for support against the enemy fortified positions.

Company E, reported four men killed in action but were unable to withdraw until the artillery barrage hit the NVA forcing them to cover enabling the Marines to pull back and consolidated their positions. Ordered to break contact to allow Marine air and artillery to target and blanket the area with ordinance, both units moved their perimeters southward to an area between the Razorback and the Rock pile.
PFC Youngin was one of the casualties he was killed in action as a result of fragmentation wounds from a hostile explosive device

Liberty " buddy "

WOW, we had many memories of trips from Lejeune and Liberty in the Med. Joe and I met your mother, sister and brother when they visited SC before Donna and I moved to California for me to go to DI school. I remember the note you put on your locker when we left Lejeune, " gone to the war, won't be back "

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Andrew Winter Youngkin Jr, 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
