I just wanted to say a prayer for the Uncle that I never knew! Thank you for all that you gave so that we could be free! I wish that I could have gotten to know you! Heros are far and few between.

Love from Jennifer Macomb Loomis, Terry's Daughter.

P.S. If you get this please say "Hi" to my brother - I miss him so much. Jennifer

It's been 40 years already, and I still miss your happy smile. To show you respect, I'm doing a profile for you on the TWS web-site. We had some good times together and will never forget them!!

All family members please feel free to contact me.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

Five men from Bravo Company were among seventeen 1/3 Marines killed in action during the initial landings of Operation BEAU CHARGER. They were

  • Cpl Orrie E. Macomb, Great Valley, NY;
  • Cpl Clyde U. Mitchell, Winston-Salem, NC
  • Pfc Dennis D. Kramer, Placerville, CA

BEAU CHARGER was one of four coordinated assaults into the Demilitarized Zone which divided the two Vietnams. Details of the operation and a listing of known Marines and sailors who died in the fighting between 18 and 29 May 1967 can be found on The Virtual Wall's Operation HICKORY memorial.
