Final Mission of SGT Walter Williams Jr.

On September 25, 1966, during Operation Sunset Beach, Company A, 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 5th Infantry, departed Cu Chi Base Camp at 0742 hours to conduct search and destroy operations in Binh Duong Province, RVN. At 0842 hours, one M113A armored personnel carrier hit an anti-tank mine. The explosion ignited the fuel tank, causing a fire and secondary explosions, resulting in eight Bobcats burned to death. Three others were seriously injured, and the vehicle was completely destroyed. At 0955 hours, Graves Registration was requested to dispatch a team to remove the remains of those deceased Bobcats that were still inside the track. The lost troopers included PFC Gary A. Barnard, PFC Gary R. Dopp, SGT Roy D. Hutting, SSGT Ernest R. Martie, SP4 James E. Miller, SP4 Terry L. Pundsack, SP4 Robert M. Waters, and SGT Walter Williams Jr. A ninth Bobcat, PFC George W. Alexander Jr., one of the three injured in this incident, succumbed to his injuries after being evacuated to the United States for treatment. He died on October 4, 1966, in Brooke General Hospital at Fort Sam Houston, TX. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and bobcat.ws]
