Ground Casualty

SP4 Robert W. Ellis was a helicopter gunner in the 1st Air Lift section, 195th Assault Helicopter Company. On February 29, 1968, SP4 Ellis suffered fatal wounds from a direct hit of a mortar round on his aircraft while it was on night standby at an ARVN compound in Hua Nghia. Slicks (UH-1 helicopters) were lined up when enemy mortar fire began to rain down on the area. The second round was a direct hit on his aircraft. The co-pilot and another crewman were outside the helicopter on the right side and SP4 Ellis was on the left side. He was hit by the blast and badly burned. The other men were shielded from the explosion by the ship. The crew chief was kneeling by one of the gun mounts and received leg shrapnel wounds. The aircraft was destroyed.
