Coach Bynum

I was a little kid living in New Orleans when I met Cpt. Bynum. He had come home from Vietnam and was helping to coach our 10 year old football at St. Francis Cabrini playground. He was a good man. We heard about his death several years later and were saddened by it; we were proud that we had known such a man.

The Death of CPT Bynum

CPT Bynum was one of about 18 men KIA on 689. He was leading Lima Co. 3rd Bn 26th Marines in an attempt to rescue some Marines from Combined Action Company Oscar who had been ambushed earlier that day, as well as some Marines from India Co. who were also attempting to relieve the CAP Marines. The entire story and pictures are posted on Google sites at https: sites.google.com site usmccaposcar in-memoriam If any survivors or family members wish to contact me with more details about CPT Bynum or the other men who were KIA or WIA at this battle, I would be grateful.
