Ground Casualty

On May 5, 1968, the Viet Cong were in the second day of a new nation-wide offensive in which they shelled more than 120 targets across Vietnam. One of the locations that was hit was the base camp for the 1st Infantry Division at Lai Khe in Binh Duong Province, RVN. Enemy rockets killed six U.S. personnel, some while they were sleeping. The lost Americans at Lai Khe included dog handlers SP4 Martin E. Brophy and SSGT Juan P. Martinez, intelligence specialist SSGT Richard A. Brown, artilleryman SP4 William E. Shaffer, clerk-typist SP5 Howard J. Spear, and infantryman PFC Louis L. Speer.

Your Sacrifice

I don't know why so many came home and you did not. Much like life itself your death at so young an age just isn't fair. May you rest in peace from your labors and find eternal love in God.
