Ground Casualty

SFC Robert J. Gritte was a Cannon Fire Direction Specialist serving with Headquarters & Headquarters Battery (HHB), 2nd Battalion, 17th Artillery, 1st Cavalry Division. In early 1967, 2/17 Artillery held the responsibility of artillery defense of Camp Radcliff and artillery support for security forces along Highway QL-19 east of Mang Yang Pass to An Khe Pass in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. On March 4, 1967, while serving in Vietnam, SFC Gritte was shot by another member of his unit for unknown reasons. He was fatally injured in the incident. The Army later ruled his death an “accidental homicide.” Gritte was posthumously promoted to Master Sergeant. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and wikipedia.org]

Thank you Sarge

I had the privilege of working with MSG Gritte both at Fort Sill in the Training Command and in Vietnam with the 2/17 Artillery. I am saddened by his senseless death and the loss of a gentle man who can never be replaced. Sarge, even though you and I weren't good friends, I miss you almost every day.
