Misadventure (Friendly fire)

Operation Greeley was a military operation initiated June 17, 1967, by the 173d Airborne Brigade under the operational control of the 4th Infantry Division. Initially, two battalions and the brigade headquarters moved to Dak To in response to an apparent North Vietnamese Army build-up in western Kontum Province indicating a possible major enemy monsoon offensive against Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) installations in this Northern Highlands province. Contact with the NVA occurred immediately, and search and destroy missions were conducted to seek out and engage enemy forces in the area. At 6:55 PM on July 9, 1967, during one of these missions, Company A, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry was in a night defensive position when they heard movement outside their perimeter. Artillery was called on the suspected enemy positions. During the fire mission, one or more of the rounds landed on Company A’s location. Three soldiers were killed and another six were wounded. The lost personnel included PFC Clifford G. Burch, PFC Szolton S. Klein, and PFC Wesley R. Sexton.
