Final Mission of PFC Donald R. Bartley

On the night of March 18-19, 1969, Delta Battery 2/11 Marines was located at Fire Support Base Phu Lac 6, adjacent to the Liberty Bridge near An Hoa, RVN. A few hundred meters distant was the command post of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines. In the early morning hours of March 19th, both areas were attacked, first by a barrage of mortar and rocket fire, then by a ground attack estimated to be in battalion size. Thirteen Marines and two Navy Corpsmen died in the two attacks, 12 from Delta 2/11 and 3 from the 1/5 command post. The NVA left 79 bodies strewn around the artillery compound alone. Medal of Honor winner HM2 David R. Ray placed himself upon a Marine after he saw an enemy-thrown grenade land near them. Ray died after the grenade blast, while the Marine he sacrificed his life for lived. Ray was formally assigned to the Headquarters Battery, but was Delta 2/11's senior corpsman during the battle. The fourteen other men lost were CPL Richard Gilliam, CPL Charles E. Wheeler, LCPL Charles E. Grooms Jr., PFC John F. Allen, PFC Donald R. Bartley, PFC Dennis F. Ellis, PFC John M. Goodwin, PFC Robert R. Highfill, PFC George N. Myers, PFC Loring W. Watson, PFC Paul Wilson, GSGT Floyd M. Keefe, HN Lee T. Hamman, and PFC David B. Arnott.
