Ground Casualty

On October 29, 1971, SGT Linus L. Oakley was off-duty and attending a swimming party with other members of his maintenance squadron at the West Side Services Beach, Herky Hill, Cam Ranh Bay Airbase, Khanh Hoa Province, RVN. While swimming approximately 75 meters from shore and 2 kilometers east of the airbase, a large wave engulfed SGT Oakley and pulled him out to sea. Search and rescue (SAR) efforts commenced immediately. Military personnel searched the coastline in both directions of the West Side Service Beach and the U.S. Navy conducted an exhaustive series of searches of all local offshore islands and the water in and around the location of loss using aircraft and ships. His remains were not recovered. [Taken from togetherweserved.com]
