Final Mission of PFC Ronald J. Fisher

Fire Support Base Blue was located near the Cambodian border in Tay Ninh Province, RVN. At 2:15 AM on February 23, 1971, the base was attacked by Viet Cong sappers. Using rocket-propelled grenades, they cut a large hole in the wire mesh surrounding the camp, and a band of approximately 20 VC sappers quickly slipped in and began throwing satchel charges all over the base. SP4 Frederick L. Beatty was on guard duty when the assault began and was the first killed by the enemy. The VC, wearing only shorts and small hats, covered themselves with charcoal from head to foot, even blackening their eyelids. They appeared to know the exact location of their objectives, and spent little time searching the compound for targets. One of the places the sappers tossed their charges was a hootch where the crew of a M42 “Duster” was sleeping. All five crewmen were killed in the blast. The lost soldiers included PFC Douglas J. Crawford, PFC Ronald J. Fisher, SSGT Genaro Garza, PFC Joseph B. Hart, and PFC Vincent J. Medjesky. A total of 23 Americans were medivacked when the attack was ended. Most of the sappers were killed during the attack, however, four were captured after they were found hiding in a bunker.

Childhood Neighbor

I remember our childhood fun on Porter Road before my family moved to WV. We were so saddened to hear the news of your passing, but I still have memories of those times. I enlisted in the USMC 8/1971. I too wonder about what could have been, but sometimes that is the price for freedom. I am thankful for you and the many others that didn't come home because of your sacrifice for our country and freedom.
