Ground Casualty

FSB Smoke was a 9th Infantry Division artillery fire support base located four miles east of Binh Chanh in Long An Province, RVN. At approximately 8:30 PM on May 7, 1968, a soldier on bunker guard duty shot and killed three guards in an adjacent bunker and attempted to kill two others in the same bunker and a ground radar operator stationed on top of the bunker. The shooter, PV2 William Brown, fired several rounds into the bunker with his assigned M16 rifle, striking CPL Thomas W. Myers, SGT Philip L. Culver, and SP4 Warren M. Kirsch. Brown next fired at the man on top of the bunker and missed, the radar operator managing to escape uninjured. Brown loaded another magazine into the weapon and fired into another unoccupied bunker. Culver and Kirsch crawled from the bunker whereupon Brown returned and shot each of them in the back. Two other men in the bunker were able to escape uninjured. A sergeant approached the scene and attempted to talk the gunman into relinquishing his weapon. Brown again loaded a magazine into the rifle and fired several more rounds at the bunker. Another soldier then opened fire on the gunman, striking him in the legs, right arm, and neck. Culver, Kirsch, and Myers were taken to the 9th Medical Battalion Hospital in Tan An where they were pronounced dead. Brown was removed to the 3rd Surgical Hospital in Dong Tam where he was treated. He was tried by a general Court-Martial on October 16, 1968, on charges of murder and attempted murder. Brown was sentenced to dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, to be confined at hard labor for the rest of his natural life and reduced to the lowest enlisted rank.
