Final Mission of SP4 Charles C. Case

SP4 Charles C. Case was a combat engineer assigned to the 919th Engineer Company, 11th Armored Cavalry. On May 12, 1969, he was the driver of Track 42, an M113 armored personnel carrier (APC), on perimeter defense when Quan Loi Base Camp, Binh Long Province, RVN, came under a sapper (satchel charge) attack. During the battle, Track 42 pulled up to the perimeter and a sapper was able to throw a satchel charge into the driver’s hatch. SP4 Case caught it and drew it close to his body, shielding the rest of the crew from the blast. He gave his life for his crew. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and armystrongstories.com]
