Final Mission of SP5 Michael L. Berry

At approximately 2315 on March 23, 1969, two U.S. Army ordinance support units based in the same area about 5 miles southwest of Qui Nhong, Binh D?nh Province, RVN, were attacked by an unknown size enemy force. The enemy attacked with small arms and automatic weapons fire. Contact with the enemy was lost at an unreported time when the attackers withdrew. No enemy were reported to have penetrated the perimeter and enemy losses were unknown. A fire was started during the action which resulted in an ammunition storage area exploding. Three U.S. personnel from the 184th Ordnance Battalion were killed in the blast. They included CAPT William J. Ahlum, SP5 Michael L. Berry, and, SP4 Jerry L. Peterson. CAPT Ahlum was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star for his heroic actions during the attack by exposing himself to danger while searching for wounded personnel and damaged equipment.
