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.

Misadventure - Friendly fire

Operations Junction City I & II were military actions conducted by United States and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) forces beginning February 22, 1967, to locate the elusive “headquarters” of the Communist uprising in South Vietnam. Junction City's tactical plan was a "hammer and anvil" maneuver, whereupon airborne troops of 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment of the 173d Airborne Brigade would "flush out" the Viet Cong (VC) headquarters, sending them to retreat against a prepared "anvil" of other forces. The highly mobile and elusive VC, however, were difficult to locate in the thick bamboo forest and jungle adjacent to the Cambodian border in western Tay Ninh Province. On the nineteenth day of the OP Junction City II, an ambush site of a reconnaissance element of 1/503rd near Fire Support Base Parry suffered one friendly trooper killed. At 1:30 AM on April 8, 1967, one of the ambush patrol members, PFC Terrence G. Dixon, reportedly got up from his position and moved toward the perimeter of another position in the area. He was challenged by a patrol member who received no answer. He fired one round and heard nothing more. Dixon was discovered at the first light of morning. He was posthumously promoted to Corporal.
