Final Mission of SGT Joseph J. Chisko

During the summer of 1970, one of the operational objectives of the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division was to shield the capital Saigon, RVN, from enemy offensive operations initiated in Cambodia. The brigade had four battalions operating in northcentral Tay Ninh Province and a portion of Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia, seeking North Vietnamese Army sanctuaries. On June 8th, B Troop, 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, an armored cavalry unit, was conducting ground reconnaissance over the border and set up a night laager position one kilometer (0.6 miles) southeast of Rumchek village. At approximately 3:45 AM the following morning, their location received small arms and rocket-propelled grenade fire from an unknown-size enemy force. The Americans returned fire with unit weapons and were supported by artillery, Light Fire Teams (UH-1 helicopter gunships), Nighthawk (UH-1 helicopter with a search light and a mini gun mounted on the left side), and U.S. Air Force AC-119 Shadow gunships. Three B/3-4 troopers were killed in the contact and fifteen were wounded. The lost personnel included SGT Joseph J. Chisko, PFC Elmer L. Keasling, and SP4 Lowell E. Moon. Posthumous promotions were given to each man: Chisko was promoted to Staff Sergeant, Keasling was advanced to Corporal, and Moon elevated to Sergeant. Enemy losses were unknown.

With respect, always.
