they have ever made a difference in the world ...
but the Marines don't have that problem."

Why? I stopped to see you on my way to Nam to tell you to stay at home with Judy. Why? I think about you a lot, friend, and miss talking with you. Why? Rest in Peace, my friend.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

India Company, 3/4 Marines, lost nine men on 06 March 1967 while conducting a company sweep near the village of Tan Lich in Quang Tri Province:
  • Cpl Samuel R. Drown, Prichard, WV
  • LCpl David C. Fryc, Garland, NE
  • LCpl Raymond Hodorowski, Lorain, OH
  • LCpl Glenn A. Sheppard, White Plains, NY
  • LCpl Richard Wessel, Indianapolis, IN
  • Pfc Ruby E. Felton, Los Angeles, CA
  • Pfc Lamont D. Hill, Massillon, OH (Navy Cross)
  • Pfc Lynwood A. Tipton, Panama City, FL
  • Pfc Wayne D. Wagner, Porterville, CA
As the Marines approached the village they came under heavy automatic weapons fire from a well entrenched enemy force. Pfc Lamont Hill, although severely wounded in the initial exchange of fire, refused to abandon his machine gun, instead using it to provide covering fire so his fellow Marines could move their wounded to protected positions. Refusing medical attention, Pfc Hill then provided a base of fire which enabled two squads of Marines to assault the enemy positions. The assault resulted in twenty dead enemy soldiers - but after the enemy retreated Pfc Hill was found dead, still in position behind his machine gun. Pfc Hill received a posthumous Navy Cross for his actions.
