Attack on Camp Coryell - March 4, 1968

Camp Coryell was located near Ban Me Thuot City in Darlac Province, RVN. It was home to the U.S. Army's 155th Assault Helicopter Company, the 185th Reconnaissance Airplane Company, and Detachment 10, 5th Weather Squadron. At 3:50 AM on March 4, 1968, Camp Coryell came under attack by 82mm mortar fire. A total of eighty-six rounds fell on the compound during the attack in which B-40 rockets and Bangalore torpedoes were employed by a ground force of sappers to breach the perimeter wire. A satchel charge team infiltrated through the civilian repairs and utilities (R&U) yard, killing a Korean Pacific Architects and Engineers, Inc. (PA&E) employee, but they were repelled by a reaction force. Other attempts by hostile elements to penetrate the perimeter proved futile, and North Vietnamese Army causalities were eight killed along with an unknown number of wounded. Numerous weapons and items of equipment were captured. Five Americans were killed in the attack. They included SSGT James C. Swann, SGT Edward W. Milan, SP5 Conrado F. Bilducia, CPT Douglas D. Crowe, and SP4 Darryl A. Gallaugher. Additionally, some thirty-one personnel on the compound were wounded, fifteen of which were serious enough to warrant medical evacuation. Since the mortar rounds were directed at the cantonment area, there was no aircraft damage, however, numerous structures and vehicles were damaged or destroyed.
