Ground Casualty

On July 12, 1968, a patrol consisting of seventeen Marines and one Navy medic, call sign Lucky Luck, from 1st Platoon, A Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division, was on a reconnaissance and surveillance operation in Quang Nam Province, RVN, to detect possible Viet Cong troop movement or arms infiltration through the Elephant Valley and Garden of Eden area. They were also providing security for a radio relay team on Dong Den Mountain. While the patrol was on Dong Den, lightning struck the Command Post bunker, detonating defensive ordinance within the bunker. The explosions killed two Marines and injured five. One of the Marines killed was rifleman LCPL Jimmy D. Fulford. The other, rifleman LCPL George W. Patterson of 3rd Platoon, B Company, 5th Reconnaissance Battalion, was from a separate patrol (call sign Park Avenue) which was on the hilltop when the lightning struck. Both had suffered fragmentation wounds to the head and body. Another Park Avenue Marine as injured, and the remaining casualties were from Lucky Luck. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
