Ground Casualty

On October 31, 1965, four U.S. Air Force personnel were passengers in a 1961 Ford Econoline van with a Vietnamese driver returning from a rest and recreation tour in Vung Taj. While enroute to Saigon on Route 15, their vehicle was stopped at a Viet Cong roadblock and they were captured. The four USAF personnel included CMSGT Samuel Adams, CMSGT Charles G. Dusing, CMSGT Thomas Moore, and TSGT Jasper Page. On November 2, 1965, while being taken to a detention camp, Page managed to escape. He later reported hearing shots coming from the direction in which he escaped. Page evaded until November 4th when he was returned to U.S. military control. On November 5th, a reliable report indicated that two uniformed U.S. soldiers were sighted near where the capture occurred, prompting an extensive air and ground search. However, none of the missing Americans were recovered. On November 15th, an enemy combatant who turned himself into Allied forces reported that he heard from Viet Cong guards that they had captured four Americans and during a move the POW’s attacked the guards. One American was shot in the arm and one escaped (Page). After the escape attempt, the remaining POW’s were shot by the Viet Cong and left beside a footpath in the vicinity of Xuai Ca. The remains of Adams, Dusing, and Moore have never been recovered. Page died in 2016. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and pownetwork.org]
