    In the first part of July 1968, during Operation Eager Yankee, Battalion Landing Team 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, conducted an amphibious operation against Viet Cong strongholds in Thua Thien Province, RVN. A heli-borne landing carrying elements of G Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, arrived in an area south of Thon Ha My hamlet on Phu Loc Island where a perimeter was set up. At approximately one-half hour after midnight on July 11, 1968, a barrage of 81 mm mortar fire hit the Marine’s position, killing four men and wounding twelve. The four lost Marines included PFC Jimmy L. Golden, PFC Richard P. Long, PFC Ernest W. Rutherford, and PFC Ronald W. Shaller. Three of the twelve wounded, PFC Mario Costa, LCPL Cecil S. Murray, and CPL Gregory R. Rayfield, later died of their injuries after evacuation to Naval Support Activity Station Hospital in Da Nang, RVN. An investigation determined it was friendly Harassment & Interdiction (H&I) fire which came up short and fell on the Marine Company position. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
