Misadventure (Friendly fire)

Operation Putnam Tiger was a 4th Infantry Division combat operation conducted April 22 to September 22, 1969, in Kontum and Pleiku Provinces, RVN. On the morning of June 5th, members of D Company, 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry engaged an enemy force of unknown size nine miles southwest of Kontum City. The Americans received small arms and rocket-propelled grenade fire and fought back with unit weapons with support from helicopter gunships and artillery. The six-hour battle ended when the enemy withdrew, leaving thirty-three of his dead. U.S. losses were ten killed and thirty-five wounded. The following morning, members of 1st Squad, 2nd Platoon, C-1/12, who had moved with their company into the area to assist D Company, were tasked with locating a missing medic from Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC). The aidman, PFC Paul R. Tilleman, was assigned to C-1/12 but had not been seen since the night before when he went outside the company’s perimeter to retrieve his rifle after helping with the casualties. The squad moved out cautiously in a southernly direction to a wooded section about 175 yards from the perimeter. Overhead, the battalion commander’s light observation helicopter swept the area, radioing they had spotted the missing GI. They moved towards the hovering aircraft, exiting the woods into a field of five-foot high elephant grass. A man hung out the rear of the helicopter motioning them to go right. The squad spread out and went forward, quickly locating Tilleman. Expecting him alive, frightened, and thankful to see them, instead, he lay sprawled on the ground. At his feet was a small crater where an U.S. artillery round had impacted the earth. Evidently, during the night Tilleman wandered in a large circle, apparently lost in the tall grass. He was less than a hundred meters away from the tattered Delta Company perimeter when he was killed. Laying next to him was his unscathed aid bag. Tilleman was placed on a poncho and carried back to the perimeter and put on the ground next to the other fallen men. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and redwarriors.us]
