Ground Casualty

In late 1966, the 35th Engineer Group (Construction) concentrated its efforts on the Cam Ranh Bay Logistical Area in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN. Projects included depot construction, lines of communication, and port facilities. Development of the depot and port complex at Cam Ranh Bay was essential as it provided support for U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam divisions and its allies including a brigade of the 4th Infantry Division, the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, and parts of the Korean 9th Division. On December 31, 1966, a vehicle accident near Cam Ranh Bay fatally injured two 35th engineers from D Company, 87th Engineer Battalion. PVT Donald Campbell, a Heavy Construction Equipment Operator, and SP4 Robert B. Glover, a Personnel Specialist, were killed when the jeep they were passengers in overturned. Campbell sustained a crushing chest injury and Glover a head injury causing a cerebral contusion and hemorrhage.
