Final Mission of 2LT William D. Dickson

PFC Vernie H. Powers was a member of Company C, 3rd Battalion, 12th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. On December 24, 1967, PFC Powers was an acting squad leader in an element of a platoon-sized patrol on a mission to establish an ambush in Kontum Province, RVN. During movement to the ambush site, about 20 miles west-southwest of Dak To, Powers' squad made contact with three North Vietnamese soldiers, killing one. The platoon then received automatic weapons fire from Hill 900, resulting in the death of the platoon leader, 2LT William D. Dickson. Powers was wounded by a gunshot above the eye. Witnesses, who included the platoon medic, reported that Powers bled heavily from the mouth and nose, and despite the medic's efforts, he apparently died. Because of increasing enemy fire, the platoon withdrew from the area, leaving Powers, whom they believed to be dead, behind. The platoon called for air strikes and artillery on their former position for about one hour. When elements of the platoon returned after the artillery and air strikes, PFC Powers' body could not be found during a thorough search. 2LT Dickson’s remains were recovered.
