Final Mission of PFC Henry Butler

During Operation Paul Revere II, the 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, had a continuing mission, beginning in May 1966, to interdict infiltration and supply routes in the Pleiku and Kontum Provinces. The Operation ended at the battle of Hill 534, on the southern portion of Chu Pong Massif near the Cambodian Border. Company A, 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry, while pursuing a group of Viet Cong on foot, ran into a North Vietnamese battalion in prepared, bunkered positions. Company B, 2/5, while attempting to link up with Alpha Company, began slugging it out with enemy troops, likewise in well-defended positions. As the size of the fortification became known, additional companies were committed until two battalions of Skytroopers were positioned around the enemy. The fierce, close-in fighting continued throughout the night of August 14th and well into the morning of the 15th. When it was over, a total of 138 NVA dead were counted on the slope of Hill 534. The 5th Cavalry Regiment also paid a high price at the battle on Hill 534, suffering 17 killed. The dead included SSGT Laurie L. Alexander, PFC Henry Butler, 2LT Edward J. Dalton Jr., SP4 Jeffrey B. Wagman, PFC Richard A. Waltman, SP4 Fred Brown, SGT Wayland Dunn, SP4 Sanford L. Jackson, SP4 James T. Langlois, SGT James R. Morley, PFC Donald L. Summers, PFC Fred L. Thomas, PFC James E. Phillips, SSGT William M. Croy, SP4 Caney Green, FSGT Kenneth Hawsey, and MAJ William E. Taylor. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and virtualwall.org]
