Final Mission of SP4 Donald R. Bair

SP4 Donald R. Bair was an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist serving with D Troop, 17th Cavalry, 199th Infantry Brigade. During the time that D Troop was in Vietnam, they served as a ground reconnaissance element for the 199th Infantry Brigade. These missions could include water-bourne patrols on the many rivers within their area of operations. On the evening of February 6, 1967, SP4 Bair was the radioman on an ambush patrol in inflatable boats on the Dong Nai River in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. At approximately 10:15 PM, the patrol made contact with two sampans near Ap Long Dat, six miles northwest of Long Thanh city. When the Americans attempted to halt the sampans, they were fired on by Viet Cong with small arms and automatic weapons. The patrol returned fire with M60, M79, and M16 fire. Bair was fatally wounded in the exchange, and the platoon leader, a lieutenant, was wounded twice in the shoulder. A the platoon sergeant also took a round in the leg. Both sampans were destroyed, and an unknown number of Viet Cong were killed. The engagement damaged a M79 grenade launcher and Starlight scope the patrol was using plus caused damage to three boats. A search was made in the river following the action for the enemy dead. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
