End of a friendship

Steve was my best friend in Vietnam--we shared a poncho hooch. I thought we'd share our lives as friends after we got out. I'm lucky to have stayed in touch with his family. We all miss you Steve.

Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

SGT Stephen E. Bebout served with A Company, 1st Battalion, 14th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. On August 18, 1969, near the end of his tour, SGT Bebout was injured in a friendly fire incident in the vicinity of LZ Weigt-Davis, ten miles south of Plei Do Lim Airfield in Pleiku Province, RVN. Apparently, right before 6:00 AM, a falling 81mm mortar illumination canister weighing nine pounds struck Bebout in the leg. A dustoff (emergency medical evacuation by helicopter) was requested and he was taken to a U.S. medical facility following which his damaged leg was amputated. He was honorably discharged from the Army in December 1970. In January 1972, Bebout was at Van Wert County Hospital in Van Wert, OH, having a routine surgery to have his appendix removed. After several days of being laid up, a blood clot developed near the scarred tissue from his injury in Vietnam. The clot broke loose and entered his lungs. Several doctors tried to save him but were unsuccessful and he died on January 9, 1972. His family petitioned to have his name placed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington after it was completed in 1982. Bebout’s name was added in November 1987.
