Final Mission of PFC Larry Batts

On March 29, 1972, SP4 Kenneth R. Vos of D Battery, 1st Battalion, 21st Artillery, and SP4 Dennis N. Peterson and PFC Larry Batts of C Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry, were part of a seven-man patrol operating in Long Khanh Province, RVN, whose mission was to investigate lights and movement which were observed the previous night. While the patrol was proceeding toward the suspected enemy location, a large command-detonated mine exploded, mortally wounding the three soldiers. The other four members of the patrol were also wounded. Their remains were taken to Bien Hoa for identification before being returned back to the U.S. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and thewall-usa.com]
