Petty Officer Beckman was on duty at the dispensary. Marines were placing foam boxes in the overhead of the dispensary for insulation. Around midnight, the group was attempting to start the dispensary generator when a 140mm rocket impacted a few yards away. Beckman was an outstanding young corpsman, full of life and fun.
