Ground Casualty

Between 2:30 and 2:50 AM on May 26, 1968, the Marine Aircraft Group 36 (MAG-36) complex at Phu Bai Combat Base south of Hue in Thua Thien Province, RVN, received approximately 52 rounds of enemy 82MM mortar fire. Three Marine personnel were fatally injured during the attack after they were hit by mortar fragments as they ran to a bunker in the squadron area. They included SSGT Jack D. Deese, CPL Ronald E. Grier, and CPL James E. Johnson. Another 31 personnel were wounded. A total of 32 helicopters were damaged in the attack. Reportedly, Marine guard units in perimeter bunkers could see the enemy mortar tube flashes, however, counter-mortar fire was not returned due to the concern of possible friendly troops in the area.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Ronald Eugene Grier, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
