 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
On Operation MAMELUKE THRUST, Company L and a CIDG (Civilian Irregular Defense) Company established blocking positions north of Tai Son Village in "Happy Valley" to trap the enemy that was reported in the area. Company B was deployed to move towards their blocking position in order to flush out the NVA into the open. As the Marines began to cross wide open rice paddies on the valley floor towards Tai Son the lead platoon was met with a hail of fire pinning down the men in the open with little or no protective cover. Utilizing small arms, artillery fire and fixed wing bombing runs the Marines attacked the enemy force eventually clearing the area and forcing them to withdraw. The days clearing action in the valley resulted in the death of six Marines including their Corpsman, HN Campbell who died in the action as a result of hostile rifle fire, fourteen additional men were wounded.
