Thank You

Dear WO Eugene Tinnin, Thank you for your service as a Chief Warrant Officer, Engineering, SEAL TEAM 1. Your 54th anniversary is soon, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Yesterday was the 58th anniversary of the 2nd Gulf of Tonkin Incident. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it still needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

WO1 Eugene S. Tinnin was a member of Seal Team One from Task Force 116, Detachment Golf, Naval Forces, Vietnam. WO1 Tinnin served in Juliet Platoon where he was assistant platoon leader in charge of a seven-man fire team. On the morning of August 20, 1968, Juliet Platoon was running a mission on the Co Chien River south of Cho Lach in Vinh Long Province, RVN. Tinnin was leading his fire team on patrol while the other half of the platoon under the Platoon Leader was conducting an ambush. While leading his fire team, Tinnin and the group inadvertently walked into the ambush where they were taken under fire. Tinnin was killed in the friendly-fire incident and four others wounded. A Vietnamese LDNN (Vietnamese Navy Seal) accompanying the patrol was also wounded.
