Final Mission of CPL Thomas R. Bliss

CPL Thomas R. Bliss was a radioman serving with Headquarters & Service Company, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. On May 25, 1969, CPL Bliss’s unit was conducting a combat patrol approximately 28 miles southeast of Quang Tri Combat Base in Quang Tri Province, RVN, during Operation Apache Snow, a joint U.S. and South Vietnamese military operation designed to keep pressure on the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) units in the A Shau Valley and prevent them from mounting any attacks on the neighboring coastal provinces. During the mission, Bliss was hit by enemy sniper fire, suffering a penetrating wound to the left side of his abdomen. He was medevacked to the hospital ship USS Sanctuary where he expired two days later. It was reported that surgeons worked for seven hours to save him, and six weeks after his passing, they still remembered him. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by Jim M.
