We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

I was there

It was dusk and the lt. called in artillery for us setting up. The first round from the 105 hit in our perimeter. Why I don't know. The Army told us the maps were off. There were 4 deaths from this, the fourth died the next day.

THANKS

Dear Sgt. Brock,
I hope someone puts your photo here because this wall of faces needs yours. Thank you for your service as a Tactical Communication Chief. Yesterday was Independence Day, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

"Misadventure..."

Actually there were four members of A Company that lost their lives due to the "friendly fire" incident that occurred that June day. The other, not mentioned in your post, died the next day on June 8th, 1972. Who's fault it was has been debated since June 1972 as the fire control veterans say it was "bad" coordinates radioed in from the field, and at least one fire control vet or fire team member says that he questioned the fire mission upon receiving orders to fire. Either way it was a total shame and heartbreaking.
William J. (B.J.) Phillips, C Company and D Company, 196th Light Infantry Brigade, Vietnam 1971-72.
