Hill 54 remembrance from DavidLudwig

I served with Kenneth in Vietnam. I was wounded and medevaced with Kenneth the night we were wounded. When I came-to the next morning, I was given the sad news of his passing. Kenneth had only 12 days left in country. He was a great Marine and served his country well. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him. We were very close. Semper Fi my friend.
David Ludwig, USMC.

Misadventure (Friendly fire)

Hill 54 was a firebase located ten miles northwest of Chu Lai and about one mile west of National Highway QL-1 in Quang Tin Province, RVN. The artillery batteries at the base supported military operations in the area north of Chu Lai. During 1966, Hill 54 served as the command post for 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On the late evening of October 18, 1966, the 1/5 mortar platoon was firing a pre-planned Harassment & Interdiction (H&I) mission from 81mm mortars when a short round occurred. The projectile traveled 65 yards from the tube and landed on Company B’s position. One Marine, rifleman CPL William F. Halpin, died after suffering fragmentation wounds to the left chest and right forearm. Another ten were injured, including one critically. LCPL Kenneth K. Scott was medically evacuated to the First Medical Battalion in Chu Lai with fragmentation wounds to the right thigh, left arm, and left leg. He expired the following day.

Sweet Man

Kenny lived in my neighborhood. It was so sad when he passed away. I felt so bad for his family. He was a brave soldier who loved his country.
