Ground Casualty

SN Leroy B. Mudd was a Seaman serving on YRBM-20, a floating Brown Water Navy base in Vietnam. Nicknamed the “Delta Hilton,” it was located on a wide spot in the Bassac River, the west tributary of the Mekong River, a mile south of the town of Chou Doc in Chou Doc Province, and very near the Cambodian border. The YRBM-20 had freezers and refrigerators and was considered by some the best dining spot in the Province. The river it was moored on, however, could be treacherous. With its 6-knot current, it was unsafe to swim in and anyone entering the waters of this deceptively swift river put their life at risk. On June 29, 1970, SN Mudd was drowned when he dove into the Bassac to retrieve an errant football he had thrown. He was carried away and not seen again. Seawolf aircraft and all small boats in the area were deployed but Mudd was not found. The nineteen-year old’s body was later recovered.
