Ground Casualty

At about 4:00 PM on February 2, 1968, several 122mm enemy rockets slammed into Khe Sanh Combat Base in Quang Tri Province, RVN. One of the projectiles struck the bunker housing the U.S. Army’s 37th Signal Battalion Tropo Unit (Tropospheric scatter microwave radio), killing the Officer in Charge, 1LT Rodney A. Alfano, and three of his men: SP5 Albert L. Betts, SP4 Leon F. Huber, and SP4 Steven L. Raney. The Marines at Khe Sanh enjoyed a special relationship with these Army Signal types as 1LT Alfano was always eager to Army rations and anything else he had with them. One of the Marines who rushed to rescue any survivors was struck by what he saw when he arrived at the demolished bunker: Alfano’s hand sticking out of the red dirt with a wedding ring on. (Note: it is an uncanny fact that all three of the lost enlisted men had Leon as their first or middle name.) [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and khesanh.org]
