Ground Casualty

During the month of May 1968, the 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division, conducted unilateral and joint offensive operations in Quang Nam Province, RVN, to locate and destroy enemy forces, bases, and logistic installations with a primary focus on those forces which posed the greatest threat to important population and economic centers and the security of allied military installations. Part of the Marines’ strategy was to conduct aggressive patrolling and establish ambushes on suspected enemy lines of movement. On May 13, 1968, a squad ambush team from Company I, 7/1, was performing an ambush patrol in an area two miles southwest of Dai Loc. At 11:30 PM, while in position at their prescribed ambush site, team members heard a single shot ring out. Upon investigation, they found one team member, SGT Paul J. Kingery, dead after a weapon reportedly discharged accidently.
