Attack on Cu Chi Base Camp – July 26-27, 1966

Cu Chi Base Camp was a U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) base in the Cu Chi District northwest of Saigon in southern Vietnam. The 25th Infantry Division had its headquarters at Cu Chi from January 1966 until February 1970. The camp was located south of the Viet Cong stronghold known as the Iron Triangle. U.S. intelligence indicated that the Viet Cong maintained headquarters and supply depots at the nearby Filhol Plantation, Ho Bo Woods and Boi Loi Woods. On the night of July 26-27, 1966, the Viet Cong launched 75mm recoilless rifle and 82mm mortar fire on Cu Chi. Many of the firing positions were located alongside the southern edge of the Filhol Plantation. During the attack, one of the mortar rounds deflected off the side of the 25th Administration Company’s postal office into a three-sided sandbagged bunker, killing two postal clerks and injuring five others. PFC John P. Hickey died after being hit in the head with metal fragments. SP4 Lawrence Raspberry also suffered a head wound and remained in a coma until his death in Alabama eleven months later on June 30, 1969. All serious casualties were carried by base vehicles to the medical dispensary and medivacked. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by Wendell Myers (July 2020)]
