REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR JAMES CALVIN TUBB JR
POSTED ON 11.25.2021

Ground Casualty

PFC James C. Tubb Jr. was trained as a CH-47 helicopter mechanic and arrived in Vietnam on March 2, 1971. During his first days in country, Tubb received orientation with the 90th Replacement Battalion, located twenty-two miles northeast of Saigon, RVN, at the huge U.S. complex known as Long Binh Post, headquarters of the U.S. Army, Vietnam. At the height of the war, the 90th was processing around 10,000 incoming soldiers per month. From the Replacement Battalion, the soldiers were forwarded to their parent unit as determined by their military occupational specialty. Shipping formations were held every three hours on the parade ground at Long Binh. Those who had received orders left for their unit. Others were restricted to the limits of the compound and employed at menial tasks until it was their turn to depart. In the few days Tubb was at Long Binh, a rocket attack occurred on the installation. He sustained fragmentation wounds and was admitted to a medical facility in critical condition. Tubb expired on March 5, 1971. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
