Ground Casualty

LCPL Stephen L. Zobel (Headquarters Battery/12th Marines) and CPL Brent R. Jones and SGT David E. Lemcke (both 1st Battalion/40th Artillery Army) were in the ammunition bunker at FSB Alpha 1 on May 21, 1968 when for unknown reasons a fire erupted in the bunker. All three personnel perished in the inferno. The fire caused the “cooking off” of scores of small arms rounds and grenades which hindered firefighting and recovery of the remains of personnel inside. A later investigation revealed that the fire was started when an illumination flare and grenade were detonated by the accidental discharge of a rifle which was being cleaned by an individual in the bunker.

a letter to Eva Jones, Brents mother, from Brents friend about the day he was killed

I would love to submit this letter but I am just a second cousin to Brent and think someone closer should submit it if they think it appropriate. I would be glad to send a copy to them to approve. Though I didn't know Brent I always find his name at the actual wall or traveling reproductions. Thank You Brent and all the brave soldiers for their service.
