Final Mission of PFC Dale R. Forsythe

On January 19, 1970, a day after conducting bomb damage assessment of a B-52 Arc Light strike in dense jungle about 45 kilometers north of An Khe, members of C Company, 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry marched into an ambush by an unknown number of enemy soldiers. The attack came from a concealed bunker complex fixed with supporting firing positions. Five members of 2nd Platoon died in the attack, including PVT Raymond J. “John” Aquino, 2LT Mel E. Salazar Jr., PFC Dale R. Forsythe, PFC Juan Fret-Camacho, and SP4 Aubrey A. Wiggins. All were killed by small arms fire. When the shooting stopped and the enemy withdrew, the five dead soldiers were retrieved. It took a significant effort by their comrades to carry the five and their gear through thick forest a half mile back to a secure area where they remained overnight. The following morning helicopters arrived to extract the fallen warriors. [Taken from cacti35th.org]
