  • Final Mission of SP4 Walter H. Anslow

    Posted on 5/16/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On March 22, 1968, SP4 Walter H. Anslow of D Company, 2nd Battalion, 501st Infantry, 101st Airborne Division, was engaged in combat at Nui Hon Vuon, known as Hill 309, in the uncharted, primeval wilderness straddling the Vietnamese-Laotian border in Thua Thien Province, part of the I Corps tactical zone. It was here SP4 Anslow was fatally wounded by an NVA mortar round that fell on his company’s position. The tragedy of his death was compounded later when his father committed suicide shortly after his burial in Florida, a grieving parent unable to cope with loss of his only child.
