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.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Samuel Abrams Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
