Ground Casualty

On August 12, 1969, Communist forces shelled and launched ground attacks throughout South Vietnam in the heaviest outbreak of enemy-initiated action in three months. At least sixteen Allied camps were hit. About 20 miles west of An Loc, North Vietnamese Army troops tried to overpower the 1st Cavalry Division’s LZ Becky for the second day in a row. A 50-minute fight, seven miles southeast of Katum, left 59 NVA dead. Sixteen Americans were killed in the engagement and 36 others were wounded. The lost U.S. personnel included SSGT Samuel Abrams Jr., PFC Greg A. Barker, SP4 Bobby L. Bevard, SGT Thomas W. Carrington, SP4 Fredrick P. Gillen, SP5 Jeremiah M. Hayes Jr., PFC Gary L. Hoskins, PFC Kenney E. Lassiter, SGT Harold G. Miles, SP5 George R. Platter, PFC Garry G. Smith, SSGT George E. Snyder, CPT Donald H. White, SP4 Marion L. Zipp, and CPL Richard J. Zisko.
