Final Mission of GMGSN Howard E. Brown Jr.

On January 9, 1970, four U.S. Navy River Division 594 riverine patrol boats (PBR's) were enroute to night Waterborne Guard Post positions when they came under heavy B-40 rocket and automatic weapons fire from the south bank of the Vam Co Dong River, three miles south of Ben Keo in Tay Ninh Province, RVN. A total of nine B-40's were fired, and one of the PBR's took two hits, resulting in a three-foot hole in the port bow and damage on the portside forward. To avoid sinking, the PBR beached on the north bank, west of the contact area, and twenty minutes later was taken in tow to Ben Keo by an Armored Troop Carrier with a River Monitor providing cover. An artillery sweep of the contact area was followed by Army LHFT and Navy Black Pony OV-10A Bronco airstrikes. However, casualties were unknown. Friendly casualties were one U.S. Navy killed, GMGSN Howard E. Brown Jr., and four USN wounded, who were medevacked less than 16 minutes after the start of the action.
