Thank you Doug,

I sometime think about you Doug and how I had a young brave relative that was killed in action in a foreign land. The bravery that had to take to leave home and step forward to do so. I know we must of met but I would have been to young to remember the event. I have ask my dad about you and his comment was "...of all of Buckshots sons, I liked Doug the best. We had a lot of good times fishing together". Thank you again for your service. Kevin, son of your first cousin Nancy.

Final Mission of LCPL Douglas W. Hogge

Near midnight on June 5, 1966, a squad-sized patrol from Company L, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, detonated an unknown explosive device estimated at 10lbs. of TNT while searching a pagoda, three miles southeast of the Tuy Loan Bridge in Quang Nam Province, RVN. The blast from the explosive device caused the sympathetic detonation of one M26 grenade and one white phosphorous grenade a Marine was carrying in his grenade pouch. One Marine, rifleman LCPL Douglas W. Hogge, died after suffering burns and fragmentation wounds to the head and neck. Another three Marines were wounded. The casualties were medically evacuated.
