Ground Casualty

PFC John W. Roberson was an infantryman serving with the “Redcatchers” of D Company, 4th Battalion, 12th Infantry, 199th Infantry Brigade. On June 22, 1969, PFC Roberson was on battalion-sized patrol in Binh Tuy Province, RVN, at a point where the province meets adjacent Long Khanh Province. D Company was conducting a water crossing on the Dong Nai River by means of a single rope when the line untethered and PFC Roberson, a non-swimmer, was swept under. He had been at the deepest part of the channel and in the swiftest part of the river. Another team member was able to pull him to the surface twice but was unable to control his struggling. Two other men attempted to assist, but Roberson was again swept under. Witnesses never saw him surface again. For a period of two and half hours, three to six men searched 30-40 meters downstream and in the immediate area. The following day, an additional search was made of the river on both sides for 600 meters, but no trace of Roberson was found.
