Ground Casualty

A2C Oliver J. Riddle, A2C John M. Cole, and A2C George M. Bevich Jr. were security policemen serving with the 377th Air Police Squadron at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Gia Dinh Province, RVN. On the night of December 4, 1966, the air base was attacked by an estimated force of 60 Viet Cong who attempted to infiltrate the base. Security dog handlers, including A2C Bevich, were alerted and led the defense against the base. A furious battle ensued between the infiltrators and 50 members of the 377th Air Police Squadron. By dawn the communists had dispersed, leaving 18 dead and four prisoners. Three policemen were killed in the battle including Riddle, Cole, and Bevich. Two security dogs were also killed and six handlers and two of their dogs were wounded. Seventeen of the dog handlers were later cited for bravery with A2C Bevich receiving the Silver Star posthumously.
