Final Mission of PFC Jack A. Bowman

On November 17, 1968, a squad from the 2nd Platoon, D Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, 1st Marine Division, was overrun by the enemy at their ambush site near the Song Cu De River, six miles northwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. The enemy was the point element of an North Vietnamese Army company moving towards Da Nang. No communications with the squad was received during or after the firing was heard. Another Marine unit moved into the area and found six of the squad members dead and one seriously wounded, who related that his unit was hit and overrun without warning. He did not know which direction the enemy came from, or where they went after the attack. Shortly after relating this information, the Marine died. The seven squad members killed in the engagement were PFC Jack A. Bowman, PFC Timothy A. Crandall, PFC Ryan J. Gallow, PFC Robert E. Greene, PFC Thomas J. Killion Jr., PFC Martin D. Shields, and LCPL David Vollmer. Six of the Marines suffered close-range gunshot wounds to the head, suggesting the enemy delivered execution-style fatal shots to some of the wounded.

Never Forgotten.

I recall the days of summer, baseball, hanging out at Harwood school. We were carefree and happy. Semper Fi, old friend.
