Casualty at Sea

The USS Ozbourn (DD-846) was a U.S. naval destroyer named in honor of PVT Joseph W. Ozbourn, USMC, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry in battle during the invasion of Tinian Island in the Marianas group in 1944. In July 1966, the Ozbourn began a two-year tour of duty with the 7th Fleet as a member of Destroyer Squadron 9. A great part of that time was spent on gunfire assignments supporting troops in South Vietnam, and interdicting supply and communications routes in North Vietnam. On December 4, 1967, while suppressing costal defense sites in North Vietnam, the Ozbourn was taken under fire by enemy guns. The second enemy round penetrated the main deck aft on the starboard side of Mount 52. The projectile detonated in the berthing compartment below; all power was lost. Two personnel, CS3 Raymond L. Cork Jr. and SN Edward S. O’Brien, were killed, and three others injured, one seriously. While evading the enemy gunfire, over a hundred splashes were recorded near Ozbourn. The battle damage was quickly repaired but it was necessary to proceed to Subic Bay for structural repairs. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and ozbourn.org]
