I was there!

I WAS THERE
I was the radio operator on an artillery forward observer team attached to Bravo company 1st Bn 4th Marines. There were 14 KIA that day including him, and 33 WIA including me. It was on Operation Granite, (Oct. 25 1967 to Nov. 6, 1967), a sweep of Hills 674 and 300 west of Hue. One of the many nameless firefights Marines in Vietnam engaged in, and for a single company Bravo, it was a heavy toll before we were pulled back and replaced by Delta Company. Eleven KIA and 31 WIA.

From Bravo Company the KIA were, Lieutenant John Dawson, HM3 Kenny Stommes, LCpl David Betts; Cpl Robert Carlozzi, PFC Douglas Clemmons, PFC Michael Fonseka, LCpl William Hackett, Cpl Angus Hare, PFC Verne Johnson, LCpl Merrick Pierce, and Cpl Thomas Uhl. Nine of those KIA had to be left on the battlefield when the company was ordered to pull back.

Delta came forward to replace Bravo and was tasked with retrieving the nine Bravo dead. They suffered 3 KIA and 2 WIA before abandoning the effort. (The casualties were retrieved the next day). The KIA were PFC Michael Angerstein, Cpl Eddie James and LCpl Curtis Painter.
Edward Burke, Cpl, USMC (Ret)
