Final Mission of SP4 John D. Lindberg

SP4 John D. Lindberg was a Combat Engineer serving with D Company, 19th Engineer Battalion. In the summer of 1969, D Company was located at LZ Thunder along Highway QL-1, about five miles southeast of Duc Pho in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. On July 6, 1969, SP4 Lindberg was part of a squad-sized patrol of approximately twelve men conducting an overnight ambush along QL-1. The engineers were trained as infantrymen and they regularly contributed to the local security around LZ Thunder. The squad was driven by truck to a drop-off point near road marker 109 where they dismounted and commenced their patrol. After a half-mile, they moved off the road and set down near a small hill. It was early afternoon, and the point was to be seen by the enemy. After dark, they would move out and set up their night ambush. While the squad was set in place, Lindberg moved away and up the hill a little where he ran into a trip wire triggering a booby-trap. A violent explosion occurred killing Lindberg instantly. No one was near him when the blast happened and there were no other casualties. The squad radioed for a truck, and a medic arrived from LZ Thunder. He placed Lindberg’s remains in a bag and they were transported to LZ Bronco. After his removal from the field, the patrol carried on with its mission.
