They had run out of ammunition and were ordered to evacuate on the last helicopter. It was their last contact. Maj. McNemar and Maj. James H. Davis made a final sweep of the beach before boarding the helicopter and were unable to locate them. They were declared Missing in Action.

Air ForceRichard A. Harder
By Dorothy Colgate, Portland, OR USA
Richard A. Harder, better known as "The Bagger", left us in November, 1996. He spent his life saving others as a member of the 304th Rescue Squadron, 939th Rescue Wing, Portland, OR, and as a paramedic with the City of Portland Fire Department. He was first and foremost, after being a husband and father, a pararescueman or PJ as they are better known. He got his nickname "The Bagger" because as a PJ he was sent out on mission after mission without finding a survivor. That didn't dampen his desire or determination. There are many, many people who wouldn't be here today if it weren't for him. He was honored over and over not only by the military, but also by the civilian community. He was instrumental in finding the Espicopal students lost on Mt Hood, he participated in rescuing people during the Mt. St. Helens volcano eruption. Those who stop at the visitors center to watch the eruption in the big screen theatre will see his picture on the walls. He was a true humanita! rian, a dear friend, a loving father and husband to his wife Diane and his children. He is definitely missed by all of us. I miss him stopping by to see me, he would sit down and say "Hi darlin, tell me a story". Bagger, we all love and miss you and hope you are telling your tales in Heaven.

A Dear Friend,

Now, almost 20 years later you are thought of often and your sacrifice is not forgotten. My father recently passed and one of my enduring memories of him is how utterly devastated he was when we found out that Michael had died in the bombing. Michael had previously served as a Drill Sergeant at Parris Island making and molding young men into Marines and was a career Marine.

Gunny Hathcock was a Top Marine Sniper. He plied his trade to the best of his ability, so others may live. As a shooter in competition he was one of the greatest. Not only in his winning ways, but in his actions with other shooters. While competing himself, he also taught younger shooters. Gunny Hathcock will be missed by all those he came in contact with, but will never be forgotten. For he has left his mark on the shooting world. And on the Marine Corp itself.

Jimmy, I have not forgotten you all these years. I owe my life to you for what you did that rainy night near the Cambodian border in 1966 when you came to the aid of myself and two of my men, all of us wounded and pinned down. We would not be here today had it not been for your bravery. I later found out that you were killed on your 2nd tour in 1968. When I returned home from Vietnam, I planted a small Pine Tree in my front yard in 1969 as a memorial to you and the brave men of our Recon Platoon who gave their lives in order that others might live. The tree is now over 30 feet tall and is the most beautiful tree in my yard. Every time I look at it I remember you and the others. I went to see your Mother and Sister in Terre Haute about 10 years ago. They are very proud of you and miss you dearly. Jimmy, you will never be forgotten as long as I live nor as long as the Pine Tree lives in your honor. Rest in peace Gallant Soldier and maybe some day we will meet again in the hereafter and resume our friendship. SSG Chuck Norris Recon. Platoon HHC 1/35 Inf.

James Harris Haywood was born 8 May 1929 Flint, Michigan and passed May 12, 2000 Amarillo, Texas. He was the father of Belinda Sue Haywood, James Robbin Haywood, William Randolph Haywood and Kenneth Wayne Haywood whom to the day he passed held deep and dear in his heart though it had been many years since he had last seen his children. Should they see this it is important for them to know that he tried to find you and he always loved you. He was also the step-father to myself, Normand Marc, and Karen Gaye. We never saw him as a step-father for he taught, loved, supported and gave his all to each of the three of us; being a caring father and friend to us. He spoke briefly of his service in the Marine Corp. but there was always the Marine shining through in discipline and organization. He is indeed sorely missed and loved and I know he can never be replaced in any one of our hearts. Our mother still carries him with her each day and loves him as though her friend, companion and confidant were still here.

Pop-Pop you were a great man and a very loving husband, father, and grandfather. You were always kind and in good spirits. You taught me so many things and fascinated me in so many ways. You were an overall good person and served this country well earning a Purple Heart and 6 bronze stars. To me you definitly died to early. I am only 14 and can't remember you from when i was younger. You had a great sense of humor and were very smart. But yet i don't know all that much of you concerning the war i was never told what you were like during the war which i am attempting to find out and never heard from you too many stories of the war because you were a proud man and never bragged of your oh so great accomplichment from the entire family and i want you to know we love you Pop-Pop.

Over thirty years ago you died, you saved the lives of probably over ten brothers who were there that day. You had the California look and you were from Massillion, Ohio! I don't know how you did it, but you did. There isn't a day that does not go by that I not think of you, or what happened, it could have been prevented, but it wasn't, and you gave the ultimate sacrifice! I talked with your mother and sister a few years ago, and told them what had happened, the truth, you are a HERO!

M/Sgt Hosking immediately leaped upon the Viet Cong's back, and grasped the Viet Cong in a "Bear Hug" forcing the grenade against the enemy soldier's chest. He wrestled the Viet Cong to the ground and covered the enemy's body with his body until the grenade detonated. He and the Viet Cong suspect were both instantly killed. By absorbing the full force of the exploding grenade with his body and that of the enemy, he saved the other members of his command group from death or serious injury.

To my Daddy, the greatest man I ever knew: You served a tour in RVN as a MAC-V adviser, coming home to us safely. When you were recalled there as a Sky Soldier only 6 months later, I had to believe you would once again return safely. On 27/07/66, during Operation Aurora II, you were taken from Mom & I and nothing since has ever had the glow it deserved... for you missed the big things - birthdays, holidays, illnesses, graduations, births, deaths and the little things - all A report cards, drivers licenses, sock hops, filmy long dresses, glasses or contact lenses?... everything a little girl needs her daddy for. Some part of me will always be the 11 year old girl who lost her childhood that sultry July day. Thank you for showing me the strength of personal convictions, how to keep professional commitments, and most of all, how to love and be loved.
