Vietnam band of brothers

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.John Rodriguez endured ambush by the North Vietnamese at 9:30 p.m., just after nightfall. The group was presumed dead until morning, when they were discovered by fellow Marines. John Rodriguez received a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his efforts in the war. In the years after his Vietnam experience, Rodriguez and wife, Maria, settled in Pico Rivera. “There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do,” Maria Rodriguez said. “If somebody called, he was Johnny-on-the-spot.” John Rodriguez worked as a machinist for 34 years with Whitmore Tool and Engineering in Chino. He was active in the community through Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Little League and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. PICO RIVERA – A local man and Vietnam War hero died Oct. 5, but not before reconnecting with the men with whom he faced ambush in the jungles of Asia. John Rodriguez, 60, was a member of C Company, 3rd Tank Battalion in the 3rd Marine Division. He and the others in his tank were attacked April 25, 1968. The tank’s driver was killed, and the tank destroyed. To Rodriguez, the years he spent as a Marine would help to define the rest of this life. “If you go and pull out my husband’s drawer, all his shirts are military,” Maria Rodriguez said. He found a network of support and friendship when Lloyd “Pappy” Reynolds of the Vietnam Tankers Association invited him to a Tanker’s Reunion this August. There, he was reunited with his tank commander, Garry Hall, and three others who were with him the night of the ambush. The story of Hall and Rodriguez and the other men in their tank had been told in newspapers and as part of the Unsung Heroes Series, which produced models of tanks and booklets about them. In September, Rodriguez learned he would have to undergo triple bypass surgery, from which he never fully recovered. He died from complications involving his lungs, something his family suspects may have been related to chemical warfare in Vietnam. Before his death, he told his wife he hoped to see the papers and tank model Hall had. Knowing that he was not well, the package was rushed to him. “He said to me, `You call Gary to send me those items, I have to see them before I die,”‘ Maria Rodriguez said. At 9:30 p.m. Oct. 5, John Rodriguez died, the same time as the attack on his tank in Vietnam 39 years ago. The next morning, the package from Hall arrived. His family considered him a war hero, but Rodriguez paid a price for his military service. He had lifelong flashbacks and post- traumatic stress disorder. “We learned how to deal with it,” his daughter, Andrea Rodriguez, 31, said. “How to keep him as calm as he can be and try to make him feel safe.” Rodriguez, 31, said despite his difficulties with memories from Vietnam, he was an excellent father to her and her four siblings. John Rodriguez was also a caretaker for his youngest daughter, Jennifer, who was diagnosed with multiple scleroris in January. Jennifer Rodriguez, 21, said her father always put family first. “He would always put me before himself when I got sick,” she said. “He was there for me through every single test I had.” In return, the family did what they could to honor his service in the military. Since his death, Maria Rodriguez said she has been wearing his military T-shirts and the dog tags he rarely took off. “He told me to keep them for him, to give them to him later,” Rodriguez said. “And I still have a part of him, because his dog tags meant a lot to him.” His son, John Rodriguez Jr., followed in his father’s footsteps by joining the military. He served in the Army for four years, before going to work at Whitmore Tool and Engineering with his dad. “He brought me in here like 13 years ago,” John Rodriguez Jr. said. “He was just a big role model in my life.” A viewing and rosary Mass will be celebrated Friday, with a funeral Saturday at Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary. airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
