Ground Casualty

Under the cover of darkness on January 10, 1968, North Vietnamese Army forces crept into Kotum Airfield in the Central Highlands in Kotum Province, RVN, and destroyed several aircraft, killed six Americans, and wounded 21 others. Between 2:04 to 2:35 AM, the enemy breached the perimeter and conducted a raid on the airfield with B-40 rockets, small arms fire, and satchel charges. The lost Americans included SP4 Loyde D. Armor, SP4 Thomas Carpenter Jr., PFC Richard D. Devine Jr., PFC Andres A. Gomez, PFC Robert W. Muncy, and SP4 Robert Pfeister. Seven UH-1H helicopters were destroyed, eight others damaged, and eight trucks damaged. At least five NVA were killed during the attack, some reportedly by explosions from their own satchel charges.

Guilt

Our Company 2/1 Cav had security on the night (north east corner) about a 1/4 mile from where you were killed along with 5 other soldiers. I was on guard duty just up to 2 am the morning of Jan 10th 1968 shortly before the attack on the airport. I had heard a noise like from a shovel and it turned out to be land mine being placed but had no way to alert the como bunker without leaving my post. I am been haunted ever since.
