Attack on FSB Jamie – September 6, 1969

Fire Support Base Jamie was a 1st Cavalry Division firebase located eight miles northwest of Hill 284 (Nui Ong Mountain) in Tay Ninh Province, RVN. At 4:05 AM on September 6, 1969, Companies C and E, 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry, received a heavy barrage of 60mm and 82mm mortar, and 107mm rocket fire. The standoff fire attack was followed by a ground attack supported by intense machine gun and rocket-propelled grenade fire. Four North Vietnamese Army (NVA) sappers were observed in the wire on the north side of the firebase; they were engaged with small arms and killed. Another six NVA were engaged and killed attempting to penetrate the northwest wire. The ground attack was stopped by 6:25 AM by unit weapons, Claymore mines, direct fire, artillery, USAF AC-119G Shadow gunship, aerial rocket artillery, and tactical air support. Air assets engaged four to five .51 caliber positions, destroying one and killing four NVA. Sporadic incoming fire continued until 6:28 AM. At 7:32 AM, while wounded were being carried to the medivac helicopter log pad, five to six mixed 82mm and 120mm mortar rounds were received, resulting in more casualties. Total U.S. casualties were three killed and eighteen wounded. The lost 1st Cavalry personnel included SGT Michael M. Maye, an infantryman from C/2-7; and SP4 Charles R. Moore and PFC Frederick H. Barrett from A Battery, 1/30th Artillery. Both Moore, a cook, and Barrett, a communications specialist, received posthumous promotions, to Sergeant and to Corporal (respectively). At first light, reconnaissance revealed twenty-three NVA dead. Captured equipment included one destroyed heavy .51 machine gun, two rocket launchers, two Chicom claymores mines, one 107mm rocket, ten 60mm mortar rounds, one AK-47 rifle, 420 small arms rounds, twenty-eight grenades, and fifteen B-40 rocket rounds.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Charles Ray Moore, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
