Ground Casualty

At 11:30 PM on August 9, 1965, the 3rd Tank Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, Battalion Command Post on Hill 34, three miles south of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN, received a considerate number of small arms and automatic weapons fire from positions directly in front of the southern portion of the perimeter. Within a very few seconds, a heavy mortar barrage began landing throughout the Command Post area. Two living tents, the S-1 staff tent, and one defensive bunker received direct hits. The barrage lasted for approximately five minutes and approximately thirty rounds exploded within the perimeter. Another six hit the hamlet of Phong Bac (1). Muzzle tube flashes were reportedly seen coming from Yen Bac and Cam Ne (1). The 60mm mortar rounds came from the first firing position and the 81mm mortar rounds were probably fired from the latter. An artillery fire mission was called on the suspected gun positions, however, due to the distance, the results were not immediately known. At 11:38 PM an emergency helicopter evacuation was requested and the wounded were airlifted to Charlie Med. The Battalion sustained twenty-three wounded in the attack, three of whom later died of wounds. They included CPL Leslie I. Hildenbrand, LCPL Paul A. Devers, and the Battalion Adjutant 1LT Ronald C. Kraus. The assault left the S-1 office in disarray with records and files badly scattered and partially destroyed by the blast, and desks and equipment damaged.
