Fellow homeboy

Erskine and I met in (1968) basic training at Fort Lewis, Washington. We went from there to Advanced Infantry Training at Fort Knox, KY. We flew on the same plane to Vietnam in the summer of 1968. Our base camp was Camp Enari in Pleiku. Erskine was sent almost immediately to the field while I wasn’t sent out until much later in my tour. My understanding is he was killed by a “short round” from one of our tanks. I think of him often when I think back to those horrible times in the lives of all us young brothers who were taken from our homes and sent to a foreign land not of our choosing. However, I have fond memories of Erskine…a true homeboy.

Misadventure (Friendly fire)

PFC Erskine L. Crump was an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist serving with C Troop, 2nd Squadron, 1st Cavalry, 4th Infantry Division. On February 15, 1969, PFC Crump was in a defensive position in Pleiku Province, RVN. He reportedly requested to change locations with another trooper because it accommodated better the weapon he was carrying. Minutes after the change, a friendly tank round fired at a hostile position fell short. Crump was hit by fragments from the errant projectile. He was critically injured after suffering multiple fragment wounds to his abdomen and upper right leg. Crump was admitted to the 71st Evacuation Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
