Misadventure (Friendly fire)

CAPT Johnny N. Ward Jr., SGT Roger G. Holler, PFC Dewaine L. Brickman, and PFC Noel B Hernandez served with A Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division. On January 16, 1971, elements of A Company were on a routine combat patrol in Binh Thuy Province, RVN, when a hostile force was encountered. A firefight ensued after which the enemy broke contact and attempted to flee. CAPT Ward quickly moved up to the point of contact and joined in the chase. At the same, the artillery lieutenant called in a fire mission on the fleeing enemy. Three or four of the rounds came in short and landed near A Company’s position. The mishaps killed two soldiers, mortally wounded two others (including CAPT Ward), and injured 11 more. The dead included SGT Holler, PFC’s Brickman and Hernandez, and CAPT Ward.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Dewaine Lawrence Brickman, 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
