Final Mission of BM2 William M. Comer Jr.

BM2 William M. Comer Jr. was a Boatswain Mate serving on the Monitor M-91-2, part of River Squadron 9, Task Force 117 (TF-117). Shortly after midnight on the morning of February 1, 1968, units of River Assault Division 91 were transiting south on the Ruong Stream in Giao Duc District, seven miles northeast of Sa Dec, when they were ambushed by a heavily bunkered enemy force. The Viet Cong unleashed automatic weapon, rocket, and recoilless-rifle fire from both banks of the 30-yard wide stream. Troop laden Armored Troop Carriers, Assault Support Patrol Boats, monitors, and artillery barges retaliated with an array of firepower at point-blank range against both banks of the stream. The enemy fire was silenced and an undetermined number of enemy were killed. BM2 Comer was the only U.S. Navyman killed when he died instantly after being hit during the 25-minute running gun battle.
