3rd Squad A/16 (Mech) 16thInf, 1st Inf Div

Sgt James Gahagan was the squad leader of the 3rd squad, 1st platoon of Alpha Company on 16 Jan 69 when after securing an LZ for what became FSB Huertegen he was killed in an ambush. As 1st Platoon leader I was directed by the Company CO to form a column of twos. When my track stopped an RPG hit a tree to my front and when I turned around another RPG hit a tree to my rear. Had we not stopped at that moment both the first and second tracks would have been hit. Sgt Gahagan in the third track was hit and his vehicle was disabled. When we were able to exit the killing zone Sgt Gahagan had been killed and at least one other soldier wounded. I was unable to return Sgt Gahagan's compass that I borrowed that day. I think about him and pray for him every day. He was a good leader and soldier.

Gahagan

I have never met an actual Gahagan in my life, including my own father, Cornelious. Today I helped read the names of 2000 people who were KIA or MIA at the Highground in Neillsville, WI. I came across this name! If anyone has any info about this man, please contact me at [email protected]
