honoring you...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you died just two days before your 23rd birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.

Ground Casualty

On September 3, 1966, Viet Cong guerillas made a surprise hit-and-run attack on the base camp of the U.S. 1st Air Cavalry Division at An Khe, Binh Dinh Province, RVN, in the Central Highlands. The guerillas lobbed 40 mortar shells into the camp as the unit was holding a ceremony leading up to its first anniversary in South Vietnam. Some participants in the ceremony were killed. Four members of the 15th Transportation Battalion were fatally injured in the attack. They included PFC Daniel S. Ferry, SP4 Edgar P. Heinen, SP4 Robert A. Masterson, and PFC Elwood F. Nead Jr. The 82mm shells also peppered the giant airstrip called “The Golf Course,” causing light damage to planes and the airfield. Others exploded in a tight pattern inside an area containing the living quarters of two helicopter repair units. After the sixth round hit, U.S. artillerymen opened up with counter-fire, and within three minutes of the attack helicopter gunships were launched and were searching for the Viet Cong. American infantrymen also joined in the search. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Viet Cong Hit GIs Holding Celebration.” The Chicago Tribune, September 4, 1966]
