Misadventure (Friendly fire)

CPL Raymond R. Gutierrez and PFC Robert C. Van Vleet were field artillery cannoneers serving with A Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. A Battery was located at Fire Support Base Fuller on Dong Ha Mountain in Quang Tri Province, RVN. Their position held six 105mm howitzers on the top of a high peak and was capable of providing close artillery support in any direction. On May 26, 1969, Gutierrez and Van Vleet were fatally injured when a 60mm mortar round fired by I Company, 3/3, impacted in the A Company gun pit area between guns #1 and #2. Eight others were wounded in the blast. I Company’s firing had been stopped due to weather but was started again at 2200 hours with precautions taken for the weather. It was the second round they fired which fell short. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by Mike Stagner (May 2004) at vvmf.org]
