Final Mission of BM3 John D. Woodward

On April 4, 1968, beach landings of mobile riverine force troops on the banks of the Giao Hoa Canal one mile from the My Tho River was met by a devastating ambush. The dense foliage along the shore concealed heavily fortified bunkers. The withering onslaught took the lives of five U.S. Army riverine troops and wounded 60. A U.S. Navy monitor (92-2) which was providing support fire during the firefight was hit by a RPG-7 HEAT round which exploded inside the coxwain’s flat, killing the boat captain BMC Samuel C. Chavous Jr. and coxswain BM3 John D. Woodward. Two others were wounded. [Taken from U.S. Naval Forces Vietnam Monthly Historical Supplement April 1968, p 54]
