Thank you for your service. You proudly served from Conyers ga

You were a little older than myself but. I remember you well. We rode the school bus together. You were very quiet but nice to everyone. I was saddened to hear of your passing. You were taken far too young. RIP.

Attack on LZ Andy – May 12, 1969

At approximately 1:15 AM on May 12, 1969, Quan Loi Base Camp, also known as LZ Andy, received a rocket barrage followed by a ground probe and sapper attack on the south side of the base perimeter. The enemy was able to penetrate the wire in the area between Bunkers 62 & 70. Several of the bunkers received direct hits from B-40 rocket-propelled grenade rounds and satchel charges. A 175mm artillery tube of the 1st Infantry Division was destroyed and an A Company, 1st Battalion, 2nd Infantry 4.2” mortar pit suffered a direct hit, resulting in several U.S. killed and wounded. The sappers also got inside the wire on the north side of the perimeter, utilizing the attack on the south as a diversion for the sappers on the north side. An hour after the attack began, tracked vehicles from 2nd Battalion (Mechanized), 22nd Infantry Regiment from Firebase Thunder IV arrived to reinforce the base. They were followed by the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment a little while later, which reinforced the area around bunkers 62 & 70 with armored personnel carriers and troops. A final barrage of rockets landed about 6:00 AM after which time the enemy withdrew. A sweep of the area around the perimeter at first light revealed an assortment of ammunition and explosives on a trail which lead to a location where rifles, grenade launchers, satchel charges, and other weapons were found. Also, the rally point used by the enemy before the attack was found where uniforms, sandals, web gear, wallets and documents were discovered. The results of engagement were twelve Viet Cong killed, sappers who were found stripped down to their shorts. Friendly casualties were fourteen Americans dead and over ninety wounded. The lost U.S. personnel were SP4 Charles C. Case, PFC Gary A. Corrie, PFC David E. Demings, SP4 Earnest T. Freeman, PFC Donald W. Garrett, SP4 Ronald L. Gray, SP4 James W. Harter, PFC Lawrence D. Harvey, SP4 Robert D. Lewis, SP4 Raymond F. Norvell, SP4 Cecil W. Queen, SP4 Charles G. Stultz, SP4 Thomas A. Whitby, and SP4 Bobby J. Yewell. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
