Ground Casualty

SP4 Lawrence A. Dietz II was a clerk-typist assigned to the 407th Transportation Detachment at Phouc Vinh Base Camp. At 0035 hours on July 27, 1967, the Phouc Vinh complex was hit with mortar and rocket fire. Of the roughly 137 rounds fired in the 37 minute attack, sixteen 120 mm rockets landed within the Vulture roost of the162nd Assault Helicopter Company. Three men were seriously wounded at the beginning of the attack when several rounds hit the mess hall. Another received injuries that later required amputation of both legs below the knee as he ran from one bunker to another one so as to be with his platoon. Fourteen others received less serious wounds. The battalion surgeon and his medical staff had an aid station operating in their bunker and probably saved the lives of four seriously wounded men. However, another man, PFC Lawrence A. Dietz, died in the hospital later that day. A 104 foot long barracks also took a direct hit and two rounds missed a bunker with 20 men in it by two feet.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Lawrence Alfred DietzII, 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
