Misadventure (Friendly fire)

At 1:35 AM on August 19, 1969, the base camp of Headquarters, 3rd Brigade, U.S. 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile), at a landing zone near Quan Loi in Binh Long Province, RVN, received a ground probe from an unknown-size enemy force using small arms and automatic weapons. The troopers fired back with unit weapons and were supported by artillery, helicopter gunships, and tanks from an element of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment collocated at the camp. At 2:00 AM, the enemy withdrew. Their losses were unknown. During the action, a Sheridan tank accidently fired on an American bunker near the northwest perimeter of the base. The discharged projectile was an anti-personnel “beehive” round which fires hundreds of tiny razor-sharp darts. Nine troopers were killed in the incident and another five were wounded. The lost Americans were SP4 Raymond J. Ashnault, SP4 Reginald W. Burris, PFC Gaspar Cruz-Lebron, SGT William J. Dawson, SP4 John A. Kolwyck, SP4 Jimmie Miller, PVT Joseph P. Mobus, SP4 Robert G. Solomon, and PFC Paul A. Sparks. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Tank Accident Kills 8 GIs.” Pacific Stars & Stripes, August 21, 1969]
