Ground Casualty

About 35 minutes past midnight on April 12, 1967, the southwest corner of Chu Lai Air Base received an estimated 120 rounds of Viet Cong 82mm mortar fire and an unknown number of small arms and rocket-propelled grenade (RPG-2) rounds. The mortar fire was apparently fired from two different positions placed 50 meters apart. Marine Aircraft Group 13 (MAG-13) received 71 rounds, which landed on the runways. The casualties from the attack were two U.S. Air Force personnel killed, A2C Clyde Reed Jr. and A1C Frank A. Madison, who died after mortar rounds landed in the VMA (AW)-533 ramp area. Four other USAF personnel were wounded, one U.S. Marine was wounded, and fifty-three U.S. Army personnel were wounded. One USAF C-130 was damaged and several U.S. Army vehicles sustained heavy tire damage. The bulk fuel line on base received two breaks, and there was damage to other flight equipment. The 196th Light Infantry Brigade received 30 rounds of enemy fire which landed in an unoccupied area causing no damage. Tower #51 Chu Lai Defense Command received 20 rounds, damaging one tower and causing minor damage to adjacent bunkers. U.S. Army reaction forces swept the areas in the vicinity of the suspected mortar positions where they found ten 82mm mortar rounds, packing material, and propaganda leaflets.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear A1C Frank Anthony Madison, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
