Gone too soon

I still remember Billy as that red headed freckled faced little boy who was 1 week older than me and my cousin. I respect his memory and appreciate what he did for our country and for us the American people. Rest in peace Billy.

Ambush

On 7 October 1966, a patrol from Charlie Company was ambushed and decimated in a firefight with Viet Cong (VC) forces as they moved through a flat, grassy, populated area with major rice fields to the east, west and south of the Song Van Co Dong River. The ambush site was located approximately 1 mile east of Khiem Cuong, 6 miles northeast of the Song Van Co Dong River, 17 miles west-northwest of Tan Son Nhut Airfield that was on the northeast edge of Saigon and 17 miles due east of the South Vietnamese/Cambodian border, Dinh Tuong Province, South Vietnam.

One man, after capture, SGT Sammie Norman Womack, was marched north to the VC prison camp in Tay Ninh Province as were other Americans captured before him. He was released on February 7, 1967.

The 10 other men who perished in this assault that wiped out their patrol were:

SP4 Francisco Peraza Chaira, Tempe, Arizona
SP4 Herman Lee Cooper, Town Creek, Alabama
SSG Dennis Garland, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
SP4 Keith Eugene Hix, Kansas City, Missouri
