Ground Casualty

EN3 Walter D. Lambert was an Engineman serving aboard the USS Hunterdon County (AGP-838), a World War II-era LST 542-class tank landing ship. On the evening of December 1, 1970, the Hunterdon County was moored at Nha Be Logistics Support Base (LSB), located approximately 16 kilometers (10 miles) southeast of Saigon at the junction of the Soai Rap and Long Tau Rivers in Gia Dinh Province, RVN. At approximately 10:47 PM, man overboard was called after Lambert, who had just returned from liberty (shore leave), climbed on the starboard (right) forward boat boom and jumped into the water. Witnesses reported that he was quickly lost from sight. An intense search was initiated by shipboard personnel, ship’s boats, boats from the navy repair ship USS Tutuila (ARG-4), numerous boats from Nha Be LSB, and helicopters. Despite these efforts, the search teams were unable to locate Lambert. His remains were later found by Vietnamese fishermen, recovered and positively identified, and forwarded to the U.S. Army Mortuary at Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon. Lambert was 25 years old at the time of his death. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
