SSG. MICHAEL W. WEBSTER
My father, SSG Michael W. Webster served with the C
Troop, 2nd Plt., 3/4 Cav,
25 Infantry from 6 May 1967 until his death on 6 February 1968. He
was a career
soldier, and loved the Army. I was too young to have known
him, but through
this site and the many veterans who served with him I hope to learn more
about him. From 1985 - 1989 I was an Army Medic and X-ray
Tech, I have always
felt pride in the statement, "To conserve the fighting strength."
As a Medic
I felt a tremendous loyalty to my fellow soldiers, I know my father felt
same. On the 31st of January 1968, he was wounded and could have
evacuated, but he chose to stay in the fight. I have a great
admiration for the tremendous courage that all of C Troop showed in those
days of Tet and after. Knowing the kind of troopers you all are,
I am very
proud of my father and of you. No one could have ask to serve with a
Cavalry Unit as C Troop, 3/4 Cavalry. Prepared and Loyal.
