Combined Action Program (CAP)
The Duc Duc Resettlement Village
Robert loved the Vietnamese People in our peasant- farming
While on patrol, he died rushing to the aid of another CAP
Marine, who had stepped on a booby-trap.
Robert Pierce believed in the United States. And he believed in what
he was doing, trying to save the Vietnamese peasants of the Duc Duc Resettlement
Village from terrorists.
For Robert, it was not about politics... It was about honor, and what was right!
(Robert Pierce traded patrols with me on the morning of August
Robert was my friend. GOD BLESS HIM... (And let him always be remembered as an American Hero.)
