Very much appreciate the labor and research undertaken by Lt. Carr’s brother to clear some of the false information and cover-up in regards to the Firebase Birmingham bombing that was responsible for ending and impacting an enormous number of American lives.

Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

Firebase Birmingham was a U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) base approximately seven miles southwest of Hue in Thua Thien Province, RVN. The base was originally established on Highway 547 in March and April of 1968 by the 2nd Brigade, 1st Airborne Division, to support Operation Jeb Stuart. Just before noon on March 16, 1968, the 1/327th Command Post of the 101st Airborne Division reported receiving incoming rounds/missiles/objects of unknown size which caused three large explosions. The blasts created six-foot deep craters that were thirty feet in diameter. One of the rounds hit the Fire Direction Center of Alpha Battery, 2/320th Artillery. Eight Americans were killed in the incident and another thirty-two were wounded, twenty of which required evacuation. The lost U.S. personnel included CPL Elbert A. Ballance, SSG Robert L. Bodine, 1LT Dennis R. Carr, PFC Bruce W. Loiselle, CPL Theodore V. McInnis, SGT Young D. Ogletree, CPL Thomas W. Scott, and SP4 Henry J. Servent Jr. An investigation into the incident determined that a U.S. Marine Corps A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft on a support mission dropped three Mk 82 general purpose 500lb. bombs on the base.
