we will remember them....

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Final Mission of SP4 Herbert H. Stauffer

On February 20, 1969, elements of the 9th Infantry Division’s 3rd Battalion, 47th Infantry and 3rd Battalion, 60th Infantry were on the first day of a two-day operation in Kien Hoa Province, RVN, when they made contact with an enemy force of unknown-size four miles northeast of Giong Trom. The action began at 11:00 AM when gunships of Troop D, 3rd Squadron, 5th Cavalry spotted and killed two enemy soldiers running into a wood line. When the gunships began receiving heavy automatic weapons fire, they called in airstrikes which destroyed seven enemy bunkers. Company B, 3-60 were close by conducting a sweep, and after being lifted into the area of contact, killed one Viet Cong (VC). The 3-5 gunships swept southeast ahead of the infantrymen, killing five more enemy. When Company B, 3-47 was inserted south of 3-60, they came under heavy automatic weapons fire. Surrounded, they ditched into canals and dikes for cover. Enemy snipers around their position were engaged with M60 machine guns. The battle continued until nightfall, the besieged B/3-47 reinforced on their left flank by A/3-47 and B/3-60 on their right. A Regional Forces Company was used as a blocking force, completing a cordon around the enemy. Artillery, gunships, and airstrikes pounded the area throughout the night and next day. An all-day sweep turned up ninety VC dead and scattered weapons and clothing. It was later determined the enemy force was the 516th VC Battalion. Interrogation of captured prisoners revealed the 516th was enroute to Ben Tre to lay siege on the city during a planned Winter-Spring Offensive but had been completely surprised by the U.S. forces. As a result of the contact, the attack failed to materialize. U.S losses were nine killed and ten wounded. The lost personnel included (B/3-47): PFC Michael D. Adams, PVT Billie J. Mc Clure, SP4 Larry T. Ross, and 1LT Allen C. Yeomans III; (HHC/3-47) medic PFC Marvin A. De Vault; and (B/3-60): SP4 Quenton L. Christensen, SGT Junior F. Roniger, SP4 Herbert H. Stauffer, and PFC Clarence Robinson Jr. (died of wounds 02/21/1969). De Vault was posthumously promoted to Corporal.
