Final Mission of LCPL Kenneth W. Mokuau Jr.

On January 22, 1969, Marine engineers with a security squad from C Company, 1st Engineer Battalion, 7th Marines were returning from a sweep of Route 4 (QL-4) along the Song Yen (river) when they were ambushed two miles south of Hill 55 in Quang Nam Province, RVN, by an enemy force from both sides of the road. The 10:05 AM attack occurred while the team was moving west towards Hill 37 between the hamlets of Gaio Ai and Da Hoa An in the Dien Ban District. A deadly crossfire of automatic weapons fire from the north and south sides of the road killed five Marines and a Navy corpsman. The lost personnel included (from C/1/7) LCPL Johnny S. Holt, LCPL Kenneth W. Mokuau Jr., and CPL John F. Weaver; also (from Headquarters & Service Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines) LCPL William M. Mooers, LCPL Aubra E. Morgan Jr., and HN Joseph A. Wilk Jr. Three others were wounded. Both the sweep team and security force returned fire causing unknown enemy casualties. A squad-sized Marine reaction force from Hill 55 was sent to secure the ambush site and organized the medivac of all the dead and wounded.
