Final Mission of PFC Barry K. Weaver

In early June 1970, during the Cambodian Incursion, Army Engineer land-clearing companies entered the Fishhook area where they worked with the 11th Armored Cavalry to find and destroy enemy fortifications, hiding places, and supplies and equipment. Rome plows cleared over 1,700 acres of jungle and destroyed over 1,100 enemy positions. The North Vietnamese Army resisted the land clearers in the Fishhook region and some units encountered enemy attacks. On June 16th, the enemy made some seventy individual attacks against the cutting force. Three operators suffered wounds and two plows received light damage. One Rome plow struck a mine, wounding the operator and damaging the plow. At 9:34 PM on the 19th, the NVA attacked a forward operating base established by 984th Land Clearing Company near Choam Kravien, fifteen miles southwest of Loc Ninh Airfield. The engineer’s position received heavy mortar, rocket-propelled grenade, and small arms fire. The assault ended after forty-five minutes, killing three 984th LCC personnel and wounding eighteen. Nine others were injured, including two Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) soldiers. The lost engineers included SP5 Francis A. Bond, PFC Charles E. Thornton, and PFC Barry K. Weaver. Thornton received a posthumous promotion to Corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Engineers at War” by Adrian G. Traas]
