Ground Casualty

SP5 Alexander A. Ames was a food service specialist serving with Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division at LZ Thunder (AKA LZ Debbie), 5 miles southeast of Duc Pho Airfield in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. At 2255 hours on October 31, 1968, there was a request for a “dustoff” (medical evacuation by helicopter) for a U.S. soldier with a gunshot wound in his neck. It was reported five minutes later the wounded soldier had died. Military Police were alerted, and an investigation was initiated. Some of the findings determined that the incident was not the result of hostile (enemy) action and that the wound point of entry was under the left arm with the exit wound on the right side of the neck. The weapon involved was an M16 rifle. The Army later ruled the shooting a suicide. The deceased, SP5 Ames, was 22 years-old. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and 1-20infantry.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP5 Alexander Audrey Ames, 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
