Final Mission of SP4 Charles H. Soule

SP4 Charles H. Soule was a heavy vehicle driver attached to the 57th Transportation Company. On February 8, 1971, SP4 Soule was part of a convoy of fifteen to twenty-four 5,000-gallon fuel trailers carrying aviation fuel from the 3rd Platoon of the 57th Transportation Company headed to Vandegrift Combat Base north of Ca Lu in Quang Tr? Province, RVN. The 57th Transportation Company had three gun trucks, The Protector, Justifier and Assassins to protect the convoy. The Protector belonged to the POL platoon and was the second gun truck in line of the convoy. It had two side mounted M-60 machine guns and a rear pedestal-mounted M-2 .50 caliber machine gun. SP4 Soule was not a regular crew member, but he wanted to go out on a gun truck, so an M60 gunner allowed him to take his place. As the convoy slowed down to negotiate a sharp bend in the road at 0115 hours, it was hit by intense small arms fire from tall grass mostly on the right side. An RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) slammed into driver’s side of The Protector killing SP4 Soule, and blowing the rest of the crew out. The enemy poured small arms, rockets and mortars into three different parts of the convoy, setting three tankers on fire. The enemy destroyed The Protector and three fuel tankers behind it had exploded. When the attack ended, the convoy had nine wounded and SP4 Charles H. Soule was killed. One gun truck was destroyed, and three tankers and two other gun trucks were damaged. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vietnam-guntrucks.com]
