Attack on Phuoc Vinh Base Camp - July 27, 1967

Phuoc Vinh Base Camp was a U.S. Army base north of Bien Hoa in Binh Duong Province, RVN. On July 27, 1967, the camp and airfield were attacked with 137 rounds of 122mm rocket and 82mm mortar fire. Thirteen U.S. were killed in the barrage and 71 were wounded. The lost Americans included the following U.S. Army personnel: SP4 William L. Amos, PFC John C. Biondillo, SP4 Merl W. Ferguson, SGT William Gazard, SP4 Kenneth L. Hendrix, SP4 David L. Myers, SFC Leroy A. Nelson, SP4 Bobby G. Peterson, PFC Ernest Phillips, PFC Richard J. Wehrheim, and SP5 Harold E. Young. SGT John R. Evans was accidently killed during the bombardment while he was helping another soldier out of a foxhole when a rifle discharged. The errant round struck Evans, fatally injuring him. An airman on the base from the 8th Aerial Port Squadron was also killed, SSGT Harold D. Moneysmith. Moneysmith and a couple other Air Force personnel were stationed at Phuoc Vinh to handle logistics for Air Force flights to and from the base. He was reportedly outside of his tent when the 9:00 PM attack began and suffered a fragmentation wound to the neck. There were light equipment and material damage sustained at the installation. A later Allied search and destroy operation located the enemy 122mm rocket positions approximately four miles northwest of the base.
