Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

At approximately 5:30 AM on October 15, 1967, twenty-eight MK-82 five-hundred pound bombs were part of an ordinance drop by a U.S. Marine Corps A-6A Intruder attack aircraft on enemy targets near the C-2 Bridge, approximately two miles southeast of Con Thien (Hill 158) in Quang Tri Province, RVN. A single bomb out of the group fell on friendly troops from Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, who were guarding the bridge in an area known as Leatherneck Square, just south of the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone. The pre-dawn explosion killed three Marines and wounded thirteen, one of whom later died of his injuries. The lost Marines included CPL Franklin L. Carey, PFC Kenneth J. Landers, and PFC Hubert Stackhouse; LCPL Thomas J. Tori died of his injuries the following day. The dead and wounded were taken to a collection point at the Company Command Post where they waited in misting rain and mud until daybreak when a Marine H-34 helicopter arrived to carry them to Dong Ha. The incident occurred while the Intruder was under control of a Marine Air Support Radar Team, codename Devastate Delta, stationed at Dong Ha. The General Electric TPQ-1O Course Directing Central ground-based bombing system was immediately taken down and checked by standard test programs. No errors were detected. Analysis of the bomb craters in the area indicated that the single wayward bomb followed an errant trajectory due to an unknown and undeterminable failure mode of the fin assembly during or prior to release.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Hubert Stackhouse, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
