We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Attack on LZ Jaime – May 12, 1969

LZ Jaime was located fourteen miles southeast of Katum in Tay Ninh Province, RVN, and served as the base camp for the Skytroopers of 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry, 1st Air Cavalry Division. At 12:45 AM on May 12, 1969, trip flares around the base began springing into the night as enemy sappers probed the perimeter. The Cavalrymen responded by opening up on the area with artillery and unit weapons. The men at Jamie knew the attack was for real when the first of some two hundred 107mm rockets and sixty 82mm mortar rounds began impacting on the base. During the deafening barrage, the position received a ground probe on three sides from the unknown-size North Vietnamese Army force employing small arms, automatic weapons, and rocket-propelled grenades. Enemy sappers breached the perimeter with Bangalore torpedoes and briefly occupied three bunkers. One NVA-held position was destroyed by direct 105mm howitzer fire and another bunker was retaken by the counterattacking Skytroopers. The Americans at Jamie were supported by ARA (aerial rocket artillery) and a circling U.S. Air Force AC-119 Shadow gunship whose pilots used their landing lights to provide illumination over the battlefield. The action continued into the early morning, including a barrage of five 107mm rockets fired on the base at 5:20 AM, killing three 1st Field Supply Element personnel: PFC John H. Crisp, SP4 James R. Harrison, and PFC Alfred L. Lawyer. The NVA broke contact at 6:15 AM, leaving seventy-five of their dead in and around the perimeter. Ten other Americans were lost during the battle. They included SSG Charles L. Barbiere, PFC Timothy C. Donovan, PFC John W. Drane, SP4 John F. Eland, CPL Don L. Atkins, SP4 Marvin E. Park, SGT James V. Spurley, SGT William J. Burke, CPL Joseph E. Melvin, and PFC Andrew R. Sabo.
