Final Mission of SP5 James M. Bagshaw

On September 2, 1967, an eastbound convoy of 90 trucks of the 523rd Transportation Company was returning to An Khe from Pleiku under the protection of only two gun jeeps with M- 60 machine guns. Convoy drivers were lightly armed with rifles and only four or five 20 round-magazines of ammunition. At 1855 hours that evening, as the convoy snaked around a series of curves along highway QL-19, an NVA company struck the convoy. They disabled the lead gun jeep with a 57mm recoilless rifle round and detonated a claymore mine mounted on sticks level with the driver’s head. Simultaneously, the enemy immobilized a tanker truck in the convoy and trapped the lead convoy. Mines on boards placed across the road were detonated in front of the next three trucks behind disabled lead jeep. They also sprung a secondary ambush on the other half of the convoy, setting a tanker on fire. An estimated 60 to 80 enemy soldiers dug in about 30 yards up a hill began firing down on the trucks. Reinforcements, helicopter gunships, and the late arrival of a C-47 “Spooky” gunship would relieve pressure on the besieged convoy. A total of eight Americans were killed in the ambush, including SP5 James M. Bagshaw, SSGT Claude L. Collins, PFC Roy L. Greensage, PFC William A. Gunter Jr., PFC Lloyd R. Hughey, PFC Arthur W. Reinhardt, SP4 Ronald W. Simmons, and PFC Robert L. Stebner Jr. Seventeen other Americans were wounded. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vietnam-guntrucks.com]
