Final Mission of SP4 Clarence H. Brooks

SGT Domingo Munoz and SP4 Clarence H. Brooks were Airborne-qualified infantrymen serving with Tiger Force recon platoon. Tiger Force was the name of a long-range reconnaissance patrol unit of the 1st Battalion (Airborne), 327th Infantry, 1st Brigade (Separate), 101st Airborne Division. The unit consisted of approximately 45 paratroopers and was alleged to have committed war crimes from May to November 1967, including the killing of hundreds of civilians. While Army investigators concluded that many of the war crimes indeed took place, no prosecutions were ever pursued. On July 28, 1967, Munoz and Brooks were with members of the Tigers in a night defensive position two miles northwest of Mo Duc Airfield in Quang Ngai Province, RVN, when enemy soldiers probed their location. Grenades were lobbed onto the American’s position which critically wounded both Munoz and Brooks and injured another trooper. Medics rushed to assist Munoz but were unable to stem the bleeding and he died shortly thereafter. Brooks was medivacked but succumbed to his wounds on August 3, 1967. The other injured Tiger Force trooper survived and was evacuated to Japan for further treatment.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Clarence Herbert Brooks, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
