Ground Casualty

SFC William B. Hill Jr. was an infantryman serving with C Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile), U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. Hill arrived in Vietnam in June 1966, during which time the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) was engaging North Vietnamese and Viet Cong units throughout the II Corps Tactical Area. Operations extended from the South China Sea to the Cambodian Border along the axis of National Route QL-19, and from Bong Son to Tuy Hoa along the coast. Missions were characterized throughout by heavy reliance on air mobility and were largely search and destroy operations or pacification of areas previously controlled by the enemy. In the late summer, Hill went on sick call and was admitted to the 85th Evacuation Hospital in Qui Nhon where medical staff determined he was suffering from cancer of the liver. He medically evacuated to the U.S. Army Hospital at Fort Gordon, GA, where he expired September 5, 1966. Hill, 41, was a 20-year Army veteran. He left a wife and three children.
