Henry J. Boye Jr. served as an 0331 in the Marine Corps, and reached the rank of PFC/E2. He was slightly wounded in the fighting on Hill 881 on May 21, 1968.
May 31, 1968, at the age of 19, Henry
Joseph Boye Jr. perished in the
service of our country in South Vietnam, Quang Tri. He was brought home,
and was buried at Beverly National Cemetery in Beverly NJ on June 14,
met Hank at the Philadelphia, PA. airport in 1968 while we were waiting to
go to Camp Pendleton. We hit it off right away, and it sure made the trip
to "staging" at Camp Pendleton a fun ride; I guess it was a
little too much fun, laughing with Hank, since the stewardess told us
several times to be quiet.

Unfortunately, I was unable to meet Henry as he was KIA the exact day I arrived in Nam. Henry may you rest in peace brother and Semper Fi.
I met Hank at the Philadelphia airport when we were both getting ready to go to Camp Pendelton. We hit it off right away. We flew out to Pendleton in adjoining seats. At Pendleton we always hung out in Oceanside with a guy name Able. We had great times together. When we were finally assigned to companies at Phu Bai, Hank went to a different Company. He was killed during our first operation. It broke my heart. I loved him like a brother. I miss him. Pete. Delta 1/1.
