Birth: Oct. 14, 1950
Enid
Garfield County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: May 27, 1969
Quang Nam, Vietnam

Charles, the son of Clarence T. and Clara B. Ervin, of Lamont Oklahoma, enlisted in the US Marine Corps on September 18, 1968 in Oklahoma City OK. He arrived in Vietnam on March 22 1969, and was assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st MARDIV (Rein) FMF.

On May 27, during operation Oklahoma Hills east of Hill 52 in Dai Loc District a Marine patrol was moving through an area controlled by the enemy and were taken under fire by the Viet Cong. Rifle fire and RPG's (rocket propelled grenades) poured into the patrol, killing PFC Ervin as a result of gun shot wounds and wounding another Marine before the men could take cover. The enemy quickly withdrew employing their usual hit and run tactics after the initial sudden attack to stalk Marine patrols on another day.

I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old, familiar carols play, And wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peace ...(Read more)
