Attack on LZ Baldy - May 12, 1969

LZ Baldy was an Americal Division fire support base located northwest of Chu Lai in Quang Nam Province, RVN. LZ Baldy was the field headquarters for the 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry, 196th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. It was heavily defended with 105mm and 155mm artillery, 106mm recoilless rifles, and numerous sandbagged perimeter bunkers. Around the compound, row upon row of barbed wire were infused with dozens of claymore mines. This massive defensive wall was supposed to keep the Americans at Baldy secure. Nevertheless, an attempt to overrun LZ Baldy occurred on May 12, 1969. There were three separate assaults beginning about 9:00 PM by local Viet Cong supported by a well-equipped North Vietnamese Regular Army reinforced-battalion. Twenty Viet Cong sappers were successful in penetrating the perimeter, many of whom reached the top of the mountain where the 523rd Signal Battalion’s VHF operations were located. Several of the Battalion’s personnel had to defend their radio operation which they were able to keep on the air all night. Elsewhere on the base, five Americans died keeping the attackers at bay. SP5 Thomas M. Barr, a company clerk, was killed by an enemy rocket which impacted behind him as he was lugging mortar rounds to the perimeter bunkers in need of more ammunition. Two members of the artillery battery, CWO Homer P. Kendrick and SP5 David A. Lefler, died in a friendly-fire incident when their bunker was hit by an errant rocket fired from a supporting American gunship. Several others were also wounded in the blast. And SGT Arthur E. Scott and SP4 Wendell A. Weston were killed after suffering fragmentation wounds from enemy rockets or mortars. Another 24 U.S. personnel were wounded during the assault. Two days later the Battalion chaplain went to LZ Baldy and held a small memorial service for the fallen defenders.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Wendell Allen Weston, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
