  • Final Mission of SFC Edward Kenney

    Posted on 3/14/18 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SFC Edward Kenney and CPT Orien J. Walker Jr. were military advisors assigned to Special Detachment 5891 (SD-5891), Headquarters, Military Assistance Command, Vietnam Advisors, MACV. On May 23, 1965, they were accompanying an Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) unit when they were ambushed by the Viet Cong near Thoi Binh in Au Xugen Province, the southernmost province in South Vietnam. SFC Kenney was killed in the attack. CPT Walker was captured and held as a prisoner of war by the Viet Cong. He reportedly died February 4, 1966, of dysentery, malnutrition, and vitamin deficiency while still captive. This report was received by two U.S. Master Sergeants who were released by the Viet Cong and were in captivity with Walker. Walker was promoted to Major during the time he was missing. His body had not been recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “VC Pull 3d Ambush in 2 Days, Kill American, 35 Vietnamese.” Pacific Stars & Stripes, May 26, 1965]
