Ground Casualty

Landing Zone Uplift was a U.S. Army base located on Highway 1, five miles north of Phu My in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. The base was established in 1966 by the 1st Cavalry Division. On the early morning of May 25, 1970, before chow was served, a single enemy 140mm rocket was launched at the base. The projectile went through the tin roof of a hooch where about 20 members of 3rd Battalion, 503rd Infantry were still asleep in their cots and bunkbeds. Three troopers were killed in the blast: typist SP4 Curtis Smith from HHC, infantryman PVT Tommy M. Clayton from A Company, and mortarman SP4 George A. Birdwell from C Company. Several others were injured. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and information provided by Dana Castle (April 2019)]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT Tommy Makin Clayton, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
