We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Final Mission of SGT James M. Davis

Operation Toan Thang 44 was a combined 1st and 2nd Brigades, 25th Infantry Division, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, and ARVN Airborne Division operation against North Vietnamese Army (NVA) Base Areas 353, 354, and 707 in Cambodia conducted between May 6-14, 1970. On May 8th, the 6th Battalion, 31st Infantry of the 3rd Brigade, 9th Infantry Division, conducted airmobile operations in the Parrott’s Beak, a salient in southeast Cambodia that protrudes into Vietnam and served as a base and rest area for the NVA and the Vietcong. Significant ground contacts occurred at 1:52 PM and 2:30 PM in an area 800 meters south of Chantrea in the Parrot's Beak when Companies A, B, and D, 6-31 Infantry, engaged an unknown number of enemy resulting in seven enemy killed. U.S. casualties in the engagements were five killed and nine wounded. The fighting began after the lead elements of Company D entered Chantrea when heavy enemy fire forced the unit back with the loss of one American and one Kit Carson Scout wounded. Company B, entering the city from the south, was also repulsed with the loss of four U.S. killed and eight wounded due to heavy automatic weapons, small arms, and mortar fire. C Company attempted to penetrate the city’s northeastern edge, but it too was forced to withdraw after suffering two U.S. wounded. The city was then pounded throughout the remainder of the day and following night by ten USAF tactical air strikes and continuous helicopter gunship strikes. On the morning of May 9th, four more attempts to enter the city by Companies A and D were repulsed and again the city was hammered day and night by continuous air and artillery strikes. On the morning of May 10th, the city was assaulted by Companies A, B, and D and taken with no resistance. A Hoi Chanh (enemy defector), captured on the morning of May 9th by A/6-31, revealed the size of the enemy force to be 200 men. The lost D Company soldier was PFC John D. Lonsdale, a forward observer from D Battery, 2nd Battalion, 4th Artillery, who was embedded with D Company. The lost B Company personnel were SP4 David A. Butcher, SGT James M. Davis, PFC Michael L. McPherson, and PFC Phillip J. Smith. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and Lessons Learned, Headquarters, 25th Infantry Division for the period ending July 1970]

Thank you

You are of no relation but my Uncle (last name Davidson) was killed on the same date and proximity. As a fellow Arizonan, you come up in my internet searches so I'm glad to be able to say thanks for your sacrifice and to offer condolences to any of your family that comes across it. If my family is any indication, your loss will always be felt. Thanks for serving your country and the state Arizona. May your sacrifice never be forgotten.
