Final Mission of SP4 Earl D. Broach

SP4 Earl D. Broach was an U.S. Army Ranger serving with K Company, 75th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. On August 3, 1970, he was on patrol in the vicinity of Tuy An, Phu Yen Province, RVN, when he suffered a fatal head injury after a booby trap detonated. The following is an account of his last mission by William B. Bullen: SP4 Earl D. “Dallas” Broach had come to K/75th Infantry Ranger, 4th Infantry Division, in the summer of 1970 and was sent to me as a replacement in Tuy Hoa, RVN. I was down with dysentery and could not go on this particular mission. Dallas took my place as Assistant Team Leader, and point man. SSGT William Wade was the Team Leader. Wade had the team moving on an old trail when someone or something tripped a mechanical ambush. Dallas being point man took the brunt of the explosion and was KIA instantly. (Narrative by William B. Bullen, May 2003) [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and k75ranger.com]
