Ground Casualty

SGT John Matulonis was an AH-1G attack helicopter mechanic serving with the 363rd Transportation Company, 80th General Support Group, Army Support Command Da Nang, 1st Logistical Command, U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. The U.S. Army Support Command, Da Nang provided logistical support to all U.S. Army units operating in I Corps Tactical Zone (Military Region I). The logistical operations involved direct support to Americal Division, 1st Air Cavalry Division, and 101st Airborne Division, plus U.S. mechanized units operating in the Quang Tri area. On February 11, 1969, Matulonis was at Camp Viking, his unit’s base camp located on the coast of the South China Sea, approximately eight kilometers (4.8 miles) northwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. While picking up supplies, he complained of a headache and broke into a sweat. Matulonis was transported to the 80th General Support Group medical dispensary, then transferred an hour later to the 95th Evacuation Hospital at Da Nang where he was admitted at 3:15 PM. That evening, his condition was downgraded to critically ill. Despite the supportive measures of medical staff, he expired shortly after. Postmortem studies found he died from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, the bleeding by a damaged artery in the space between the brain and the surrounding membrane (subarachnoid space). Aneurysmal hemorrhage may occur at any age but is most common from age 40 to 65. Matulonis was 51. A World War II, Korea, and Vietnam veteran, he served 22 years in the military.
