Attack on LZ Buff – May 12, 1969

LZ Buff was an Americal Division forward firebase southwest of Chu Lai in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. At approximately 1:23 AM on May 12, 1969, LZ Buff began receiving rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) and mortar rounds. Between 40-45 RPG rounds were fired, and roughly 150 rounds of 82mm and 60mm mortar fire was received. While the barrage was under way, Viet Cong sappers entered the perimeter and were able to occupy some of the bunkers next to the wire for a period of time. The perimeter was reestablished and contacted continued with the enemy, which was estimated at two Viet Cong companies. A “Spooky” gunship came on station and contact with the enemy broke at 4:05 AM. Eight Americans were killed in the assault on LZ Buff, and another 20 were wounded. The lost U.S. personnel included (from A Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Infantry): PFC Alan Asher, SP4 Robert E. Greth, SP4 William C. Knaus, PFC William E. Schaefer, PFC John W. Woodward Jr., PFC Roger E. Wooster, and CPT John M. Yeatts; also (from B Company, 26th Engineers) SSG Dennis M. Guilmette.
