LCpl. Timothy Fitzmaurice served in Vietnam with the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, Mike Company. He was Killed In Action during Operation HOUSTON II. His name stands proud on Mike 3/5 Wall of Honor alongside his fellow Marines. We will never forget. Semper fi, Brother.~DR

Operation HOUSTON II

You will always be remembered

You died in my arms on May 9, 1968, while with Mike Company, 3/5 Marines. I remember it very well, you were accidentally killed by an artillery round that got too close, but Mike Company was in such deep stuff that the artillery had to be close to  everyone. 

I told you right before you died that if you pull out of this, we'll go straight to Chicago after our tour is over, and get the biggest and best steak you ever had. I know Marvin Jones sends his best too. You both were best of buddies. God bless, you'll never be forgotten.

We Went To School Together    

Tim and I attended De Paul Academy High School in Chicago from 1962 - 1966. We had lots of fun. We both played football as freshmen, if I remember correctly he played tight end. I know he also tried out for the cross country team. I remember during one practice, he cut across this huge field (might have been a nine-hole golf course) they used to run around, he was such a slow runner he still came in last. He later got cut from the team. 

Tim and I, and some other friends of ours, got caught by my parents drinking at my house when we were 15 or 16. They all got off, I got grounded for a month. Such good Catholic boys we were. 

A couple of nights ago, I spoke on the phone to one of my close friends in Chicago, Brian Dillon. Tim, Brian & I were all very close. We always hung out together. Brian was also in the Marines. In fact, I believe Tim was awarded 5 extra days leave for signing up Brian. If I got Brian's story straight that he told me the other night, Brian left for Nam on May 8th, and didn't find out that Tim had died the next day until a few weeks later. Tim's mother gave Brian his Medals. I attended Tim's funeral, and for me, it was the first time I had ever lost anyone that I was close to, including relatives.
