Ground Casualty

PFC Reginald Williams Jr. and PFC Robert J. Hess served with D Company, 1st Battalion, 502nd Infantry, 101st Airborne Division. On April 18, 1968, their unit was conducting combat operations in Thua Thien Province, RVN, where they attempted a stream crossing. Both soldiers became distressed after encountering trouble moving through the water. A third infantryman, PFC Thomas M. Holcombe, tried to save the two drowning men when he nearly drowned himself. Both Williams and Hess died in the incident; their bodies were recovered. Holcombe was retrieved alive from the water and was admitted to a military hospital in critical condition. He expired three days later from aspiration pneumonitis. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
