honoring you....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

Ground Casualty

On August 12, 1969, Communist forces shelled and launched ground attacks throughout South Vietnam in the heaviest outbreak of enemy-initiated action in three months. At least sixteen Allied camps were hit. The fiercest clash came four miles northeast on An Loc when the North Vietnamese Army battered for two hours at the headquarters of the 1st Cavalry Division’s 3rd Brigade. The camp was hit by 107mm rocket fire, then enemy soldiers carrying satchel charges pushed through the perimeter in at least three places. Fire from tanks, helicopter gunships, and point-blank artillery pushed the Communists back. Forty-eight enemy soldiers were found dead after the engagement. Six U.S. Army personnel were killed in the attack. Another 45 were injured. The lost Americans included SP4 Martin D. Childress, WO Francis McDowall Jr., SP4 Stanley A. Mensing, SP4 Lee R. Shaw, PFC William M. Treadway, and CPL Clinton J. Weaver. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and Pacific Stars & Stripes, August 14, 1969]
