Ground Casualty

PFC Thomas Lane was a rifleman assigned to F Company, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. On September 5, 1968, Lane was at Dong Ha Combat Base, a U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army base northwest of Quang Tri city in Quang Tri Province, RVN. He was new in country, arriving three days before, and spent some time with other replacements at Dong Ha’s firing range sighting in their weapons. Later, while behind the 2/9 supply tent, another Marine was horsing around and leveled his M16 rifle at him. When admonished not to do so, he replied, “It’s not loaded,” and pulled the trigger. A single round was discharged, striking Lane in the head, fatally injuring him. Marines playing cards inside the tent ran out and found Lane dead and the shooter going into shock. The shooter was taken to the medical dispensary where he had a nervous breakdown and was strapped in bed in a near catatonic state. Lane’s body was removed to the U.S. Army mortuary in Da Nang where Graves Registration personnel prepared it for transfer back to the United States.
