Final Mission of SGT Kevin D. Grogan

The following is an eyewitness account of SGT Kevin D. Grogan’s loss of April 20, 1971 - I believe that it was early April we were given the mission of inserting west of Plei Djerang where we were to perform a blocking maneuver for the Bac Dao (Black Panthers), a somewhat elite Vietnamese regiment who was doing some kind of a sweep in the area. We were inserted on a ridge and we moved to the high ground. I made the decision that as it was getting late in the day we would set up a perimeter, make sure everything was in order and we would dig in and wait until first light the next day before we moved off the hill. That night all was quiet, we got up the next morning and chowed down. While I was eating one of the Yards came up and said he had heard Vietnamese speaking, indicating a direction. I gave instructions to get everyone up and ready to move and I took my Mountain Yard radio carrier, an aspiring Vietnamese, and a squad of Yards with SGT Grogan to investigate. We hadn't moved very far when we came on to a trail running east and west. I started following the trail, and as I stepped out from behind a tree, there was an NVA sitting on a stump of a downed tree about fifty feet away. It was an instant shoot out. Unbeknownst to me, the fallen tree was across the top of a bunker. I dove for a log on the opposite side of the trail, sliding face first behind it. The first NVA was dead and was partially blocking the firing port of the bunker. Every time I would raise my head Charlie would open up with his RPD (Soviet-made light machine gun). It was just after one of his longer bursts when another automatic weapon cut loose and I heard Kevin say, “Grommet, I've been hit.” We neutralized the position and crawled over to where Kevin was at. He was lying on his back. He had received four rounds to the chest. I check for a pulse and as I did so Kevin gave off a long sigh. I called Leghorn, told them we were in contact and that we had lost an American. It wasn't very long and John Plaster was up. We evacuated Kevin on a McGuire rig (rescue harness) and they moved us to an area well cleared by airstrikes where they pulled us out. (Narrative by Gerald Denison) [Taken from macvsog.cc]
