Attack on Dong Ha Combat Base – April 28, 1967

Dong Ha Combat Base was a U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army base northwest of Quang Tri in central Vietnam. On April 28, 1967, Dong Ha was attacked by enemy forces firing 140mm rockets and 82mm mortars. The base sustained moderate damage and ten personnel killed. There were 90 wounded in the attack which started at 2:40 AM and lasted 40 minutes. The lost Americans included seven Marines and three U.S. Air Force personnel. The Marines were LCPL Paul J. Braun, CPL Ritson L. Clarke, SSGT Jerry Delph, LCPL William L. Harris, LCPL John H. Holland, CPL Albert J. Rose, and SGT George F. Smith; the airmen were A1C Wolfgang A. Haegele, SSGT Lindy E. Henry, and A3C Bob Jewitt. At first light on April 28th, Company A, 1/9 Marines began searching for the enemy launch site. Seventy-eight rocket launching positions aimed at the base were located and 54 intact rockets were captured. At another position, a launch site with 30 launching positions and 15 intact rockets was discovered.
