I was Freddies fire team leader. He was a good solder and a man that could be counted on to do his duty. His last thoughts were of his mother and those he loved.

Final Mission of PFC Freddie L. McNeil

Operation Nevada Eagle was a security operation in Thua Thien Province, RVN, from May 17, 1968 to February 28, 1969. The mission objectives were to protect the city of Hue and surrounding districts. At 7:30 AM on June 16, 1968, Company B, 2/327th Infantry, while conducting a reconnaissance in force twelve miles southwest of Hue, engaged an unknown number of North Vietnamese Army (NVA) in fortified bunkers. A ferocious firefight erupted which lasted until 4:30 PM after which the enemy broke contact. During the battle, artillery and close air support was directed upon the enemy positions. Nine Americans were killed, and six others were wounded. The lost Skytroopers included PFC Leeverne R. Achoe, PFC Alan R. Duke, SSG Ned T. Dybvig, PFC Carl W. Holler, PFC Paul L. Joyner, PFC Freddie L. McNeil, PFC Michiel D. Murray, PFC Stephen B. Owen, and PFC Charles V. Vasquez Jr. Enemy losses were twenty-seven killed and twenty-one captured, including a 122mm rocket launcher. Several posthumous promotions occurred after the action. Duke, Holler, Joyner, McNeil, Murray, Owen, and Vasquez were posthumously promoted to Corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and wikipedia.org]
