Final Mission of BM2 Kenneth R. Brown

BM2 Kenneth R. Brown was a boatswain’s mate and SWF3 Forrest E. Cain was a steelworker. Both sailors were assigned to United States Naval Support Activity (NAVSUPACT) Da Nang, USNAVFORV, which provided logistic support to all U.S. Forces in the 1st Combat Tactical Zone of Vietnam. On August 5, 1967, they were traveling in a jeep when they were ambushed in the vicinity of Phu Vang, approximately three miles northeast of the Hue Citadel, Thua Thien Province, RVN, when fired on by a sniper. The attack caused the vehicle to lose control and collide with a telephone pole. Both Brown and Cain suffered fatal injuries in the incident. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and navy.memorieshop.com]
