July 4th 1967, Duc Pho RVN
Rick was from Spencerville Ohio, 20 years old, a truck driver for my
platoon. We were on a mine sweep just North of Duc Pho and Rick was
operating a mine detector when a explosion occured on his hip. Fragments
tore off his leg and much of his hip. He was alive and talking to us as we
put him on the chopper. His last words to us was "Tell my mother I love
her." He was a great worker and soldier. His name is on panel 23E Line 7
up at the top. His memory lives on with me.
