Ground Casualty

Before dawn on November 17, 1970, Viet Cong forces launched approximately a dozen 122-millimeter mortars at a barracks facility at Bien Hoa Air Base, one of the major U.S. air facilities in South Vietnam. Though the attack was launched from outside the base’s perimeter and intended as just a harassing strike, the large caliber mortar explosions killed five people, including three U.S. servicemen, and wounded 34 others. The Military Assistance Command later described this attack as minor and casualties as light. But it did kill five people, including three Americans who served at Bien Hoa. Air Force Sergeant Joseph Carter Jr. was in his bunk when the shells hit. Carter was killed instantly. Another man in his unit in an adjacent room, Air Force Sergeant Kenneth D. Adkins was also killed. He and Carter served together in the 22nd Tactical Air Support Squadron, 504th Tactical Air Support Group, 7th Air Force. The third American killed was Army Specialist 4 Dennis E. Stecker from the 118th Aviation Company, 145th Aviation Battalion. [Taken from vietnamwar50th.com]
