we will remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Attack on Berchtesgaden - August 24, 1969

Fire Support Base (FSB) Berchtesgaden was a 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile) fire support base located on Hill 1030 overlooking the A Shau Valley in Thua Thien Province, RVN. Constructed in 1968, it was named for the Bavarian town favored by Adolf Hitler and captured by U.S. troops in May 1945. It was the forward Third Brigade command post and provided crucial fire support to U.S. forces operating in the highly contested A Shau Valley. During the early morning of August 24, 1969, Berchtesgaden was attacked by a squad-sized enemy sapper force. The attack was initiated prematurely due to the commencement of a "mad minute" at 3:20 AM, fifteen minutes after a previous mad minute. The Americans engaged the sappers with small arms and automatic weapons fire. The assaulting demolition squad began withdrawing at the same time an estimated enemy company attacked the firebase with small arms and rocket-propelled grenades (RPG’s). Bunkers located on the southwestern side of the perimeter manned by men of Company B, 1-506 Infantry bore the brunt of the assault. Throughout the night intensive artillery, aerial rocket artillery (ARA), and U.S. Air Force C-47 "Spooky" gunship fire was placed on the attacking enemy force. The enemy employed mortar fire later in the night, killing three Americans. Contact ceased at 4:16 AM. Artillery, ARA, and airstrikes were continuously put on suspected enemy mortar firing sites and routes of withdrawal. A sweep of the perimeter the following morning revealed thirty-one enemy killed, eight RPG launchers, and six AK-47's. Friendly losses during the attack were three killed and eight wounded. The lost personnel included (B/1-506) PFC Lenard F. Moeggenborg (posthumously promoted to Corporal) and PFC Richard J. White (posthumously promoted to Corporal); and (E/1-506) CPL William F. Golliday. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Operational Report - Lessons Learned, 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile) for Period Ending 31 October 1969” at archive.org]
