Misadventure (Friendly fire)

Operation Henderson Hill was a search and clear operation conducted in Quang Nam Province (I Corps), RVN, by the 5th Marines as a follow-up to Operation Mameluke Thrust. On November 3, 1968, during operations against the NVA’s 1st Battalion, 36th Regiment, elements of E Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines were moving forward for an assault upon NVA positions near Thon Bon when a Marine F-4 Phantom II fighter/bomber accidently released its bombs on the Marine’s location. Seven Americans were killed in the incident and several others were wounded. The lost Marines included LCPL Joseph E. Davis Jr., PFC Larry D. DuBose, CPL Michael J. Foy, CPL Matthew A. Ruden, PFC John F. Schrom, HM3 John B. Thorton, and LCPL Thomas E. Welch. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “U.S. JET HITS OWN FORCES; 6 ARE KILLED.” Chicago Tribune, November 4, 1968]

Great Uncle I Never Met
