Final Mission of LCPL Paul W. Fielder

SSGT Joseph H. Sullivan, LCPL Phillip A. Brannon, LCPL Paul W. Fielder, LCPL John M. Glasser, and corpsman HM Jerry T. Suter were members of C Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines. They were members of a combined action platoon of Marines and South Vietnamese Popular Forces (PF’s) in the village of Binh Nghia, just south of the Chu Lai Airfield in Quang Tin Province, RVN. The Marines of the combined action platoons entered into the life of their assigned villages and were integrated into its defense. They offered military training to the local PF platoons, at the same time participating in civic action activities. On September 14, 1966, several PFs and Marines were out on patrol while six Marines remained within their fortified camp with 12 PFs. To insure the security of the fort, Sullivan asked that a seven-man detachment of PFs be placed in an adjacent hamlet to protect the fort’s rear. This detachment discovered nothing unusual in the hamlet and decided to go home rather than spend the night in a cold drizzle that began to fall. Apparently, the enemy had maintained close observation of the fort and a company of NVA regulars, approximately 60 men, joined 80 Viet Cong and crossed the Tra Bong River and attacked the fort. In the ensuing battle, five Americans were killed (Sullivan, Brannon, Fielder, Glasser, and Suter). The other Marine in the fort was wounded as were five of the PFs; the remaining PFs were able to hold out. A reaction force from Company C, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, and another combined action platoon came to their rescue and the VC broke contact. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and marines.mil]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Paul Wesley Fielder, 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
