Ground Casualty

SP4 Ronald R. Kirkpatrick was an infantryman serving with D Company, 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. PFC Leo J. Adakai was also an infantryman, serving with A Company, 5th Battalion, 46th Infantry, 198th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. In August 1969, both soldiers were patients at a U.S. military hospital located at the Cam Ranh Bay logistics facilities in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN. Kirkpatrick was preparing to be evacuated from Vietnam for treatment of a dislocated left collar bone and Adakai was receiving care for an issue (osteochondritis) he was having with his right elbow. While they were at Cam Ranh Bay, the base was mortared on August 7th by a hostile force. During the barrage, both Kirkpatrick and Adakai were hit with and fatally injured by metal fragments.
