Ground Casualty

LCPL Robert C. Ewald was a message system specialist serving with Communication Support Company, 7th Communication Battalion, 1st Marine Division, III Marine Amphibious Force. During June 1968, the 7th Communication Battalion provided radio, communication center, radio relay, and telephone support throughout the I Corps Area (Military Region I). Ewald’s duties included operating teletypewriters and other communications center equipment as well as retrieving and logging messages. On the early morning of June 18th, he was assigned to an overnight security detail on the railroad and National Route QL-1 bridge crossing over the Song Cau Do (River), four kilometers (2.4 miles) south of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. At approximately 1:30 AM, he reportedly was handling C-4 plastic explosive when the demolition charge detonated prematurely. Ewald was fatally injured after sustaining blast and fragmentation injuries to the head and body. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “7th Comm Bn Logistics Summary Report for June 1968” at ttu.edu]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Robert Clarence Ewald, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
