Final Mission of SP4 Charles L. Smith

At 11:15 PM on November 21, 1968, an 8th Transportation Group convoy consisting of nine vehicles was traveling north on National Highway QL-1 to the Trailer Transfer Point on Highway QL-19 when it was ambushed approximately six miles northwest of Qui Nhon in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. The enemy attacked with mortar, small arms, and automatic weapons fire. Convoy personnel fought back with unit weapons, and a reaction force consisting of gun trucks and jeeps arrived at the ambush site within ten minutes. Close air support was provided by a U.S. Air Force AC-47 “Spooky” gunship. Two 2nd Transportation Company drivers, PFC Curtiss E. Braatz and SP4 Charles L. Smith, were killed and another twelve Americans were wounded, one critically. A third driver, SP5 Miguel F. Montanez, succumbed to his wounds on November 26, 1968. Two gun trucks, one gun jeep, and four cargo trucks were damaged. Another gun jeeps was destroyed. Enemy casualties were unknown.
