Ground Casualty

1LT Philip S. Gallagher III was an Airborne-qualified Infantry Commander serving with E Company, 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. At 9:00 PM on December 10, 1971, an enlisted man entered Gallagher’s quarters at Phu Bai Combat Base where he found him in medical distress. Gallagher was semiconscious and vomiting blood when transported to the 85th Evacuation Hospital on base. The following day he entered cardiac arrest and died. A postmortem examination determined he expired from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage (bleeding on the surface of the brain). Gallagher was 24 years old. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Think Of You Often

I met Phil on R & R to Australia in 1971. We were surprised that both of us lived in adjacent towns in Massachusetts. I still live there. I drive by his family home often and think about him. I was a 1Lt in the 101st MP Company. I was really shocked when told of his death shortly after returning to Vietnam. I still think about Phil often. Rest in peace.
