Ground Casualty

1LT Robert T. Wood was a Field Artillery Officer serving with Headquarters Battery, 11th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On May 13, 1970, 1LT Wood was standing in an observation tower talking on a TA-312 field telephone at FSB Ryder in the Que Son Mountains. While monitoring the valleys below, a high-intensity lighting storm hit the FSB. When lightning struck approximately 25 yards to the right side of Wood’s position, it went through the handset of the radio and into his ear. He was killed instantly.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Robert Tinsley Wood, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
