Final Mission of CPL Peter R. Mills

CPL Peter R. Mills was a Field Wireman assigned to the Radio Relay & Construction Company, 7th Communication Battalion, III Marine Amphibious Force. On August 12, 1969, CPL Mills was serving as the driver of a M151A1 jeep carrying the Construction Platoon Commander and the newly arrived Company Commander, MAJ E.S. Lawbaugh. They were conducting a visit to a worksite where some Marines were installing electronic sensors near Hill 22, about twelve miles west of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. Also traveling in the jeep was an Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) soldier they picked up hitchhiking. When they were about a hundred yards from the worksite, a large explosion erupted beneath their vehicle when an estimated 40lb. box mine was detonated. The blast, believed to be command-detonated, killed Mills and the ARVN passenger, and tossed the two officers from the jeep. Viet Cong then came out to the road and raked the area with AK-47 fire. Marines at the worksite responded and came to the aid of the beleaguered Commo men. A medivac was requested, but due to the tactical situation on the ground, they were unable to land. Approximately two hours later, a vehicle arrived which carried the dead and wounded to Naval Support Activity Station Hospital in Da Nang.
