Final Mission of PFC Arthur D. Lindsey

On March 9, 1969, a 20-man strong Recon Platoon from E Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division, was conducting a sweep and clear mission in their area of responsibility near LZ Buff in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. As they were preparing to search a village, they spotted some Viet Cong and started chasing them. While pursuing the enemy, they were ambushed crossing a rice paddy. The pinned-downed patrol returned fire but reportedly suffered weapon malfunctions with their M16 rifles and several were unable to defend themselves. Many were forced to play dead to survive. Four members of the patrol were killed. They included PFC Arthur D. Lindsey, CPL Ralph E. Mayers III, SGT Robin B. Miller, and SP4 John J. Petrie. Two others were wounded. Lindsey’s remains were found the following day by a reaction force from A Company, 4/3, sent to assist Recon Platoon. It was surmised that Lindsey had been wounded and captured alive but was later executed by the enemy. Another of the wounded, PFC Coy R. Tinsley, had been shot in the shoulder and was also captured by the enemy. It was speculated that Tinsley’s life was spared because he was armed with a holstered .45 pistol and the enemy believed him to be an officer. Carried as Missing in Action, Tinsley was held until October 24, 1969, when he and two other American Prisoners of War were released, returning to U.S. control on November 9, 1969.
