Ground Casualty

On June 13, 1965, a group of Marines were returning in a truck to their unit from a recreational swim outing at a beach near Chu Lai in Quang Tin Province, RVN, when a grenade reportedly fell from the belt of one of the men and detonated. The blast, which ignited a five-gallon jug of fuel, killed two and injured another twenty. The two lost Marines were CPL Edgar C. Brown and PFC Francisco X. Saenz, infantrymen from D Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. One of the eight critically wounded, PVT Clayton L. Cruce, also from D/1/4, was medically evacuated to a U.S. Air Force hospital in Japan where he expired June 21, 1965.
