Ground Casualty

SP4 Steven J. Minkler was an 18-year-old helicopter mechanic serving with D Troop, 7th Squadron, 17th Cavalry, 1st Aviation Brigade at Lane Army Heliport in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. SP4 Minkler worked on Army UH-1 helicopters, performing scheduled maintenance and major repairs on the aircraft. Being flight qualified, he occasionally crewed on the helicopters during airlifts. Another responsibility Minkler had was regular duty on the base perimeter providing security. On July 18, 1971, Minkler was on perimeter security in a tower on the northeast end of the airbase when he died in what Army investigators determined was an accidental discharge after he shot himself in the eye with a .45 pistol. Another soldier was on duty in the tower with Minkler during the incident, however, he was asleep when the gun discharged and, incredibly, was not awakened by the gunshot. Instead, Minkler was found by security team members sent out to investigate a report of gurgling sounds coming over the radio. His remains were sent to the Quin Yon graves registration for processing. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by Charlie Wray (December 2016)]
