Fellow Brother

Rich, should have written a remembrance much sooner. It has been 51 years since your passing. Think about you many times and you were in our thoughts in 2019, during a reunion of six of your brothers from the 3rd platoon. May your spirit rest in peace. Marty "Moose" Tomcek

Ground Casualty

SGT Richard W. Littleton was an infantryman serving with A Company, 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry, 198th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On July 4, 1970, Littleton was reportedly handling a 107mm (4.2 inch) white phosphorous munition at a pacified village six miles northeast of Quang Ngai City in Quang Ngai Province, RVN, when the round detonated. Littleton was critically injured after the round, an incendiary munition which self-ignites on contact with air, caused 2nd and 3rd degree burns over his entire body. He was admitted to the 91st Evacuation Hospital at Chu Lai; Littleton succumbed to his injuries nine days later at a hospital in Da Nang.
