LEFT FOR KENNETH EUGENE AZNOE
POSTED ON 12.24.2023

Final Mission of PFC Kenneth E. Aznoe

Operation Fresh Start (January 29 – April 30, 1970) was an 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment land clearing operation along Route 246 in Military Region III. The objective was to interdict the enemy north-south line of communication. The area was known as the Saigon-Michelin Corridor and was characterized by a series of supply trails known as the Mustang Trail used by the North Vietnamese Army to move men and material. The 1st and 2nd Squadrons of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment provided security for the 501st and 984th Land Clearing Companies as they used Rome Plows to make 200-yard-wide cuts in the jungle on each side of Route 246. In early April, Third Squadron was op-conned to 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) units to support patrols and reconnaissance in the operational area. At 8:45 AM on April 17th, an I Troop, 3rd Squadron armored cavalry assault vehicle (ACAV) M113 was participating in a reconnaissance mission 11 kilometers (6.6 miles) east of Lai Khe Airfield in Binh Duong Province, RVN, when it detonated a hostile mine and caught fire. The driver, PFC Kenneth E. Aznoe, sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns to over 60% of his body including his right hand, right arm, left arm, both legs, trunk, and face. Aznoe also suffered inhalation injuries and a fragmentation wound to his left leg. He was admitted to the 93rd Evacuation Hospital at Long Binh Post at 9:15 AM and placed on the seriously injured list. Despite the life-saving measures applied by medical staff, Aznoe expired five days later on April 22nd at 5:10 PM. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star medal for merit.
