Last Known Activity
22 February 1967 - At approximately 2210H, STABLE DOOR forces suffered their first in country personnel casualties due to enemy action in Qui Nhon harbor, RVN. During a routine board and search operation, a skimmer approached a sampan; an object was thrown from the sampan and landed in the skimmer. The boat captain (BM3 Terry Lee DAVIS, 776 29 93, USN) immediately ordered the other crew member (SN Daniel Eugene MOORE, Jr. 693 71 54, USN) to clear the craft. Immediately thereafter, an explosion occurred causing both crew members to be thrown in the water. BM3 DAVIS remained conscious until arrival of an additional patrol craft and directed attention to search for SN MOORE, whom he believed to have still been alive. BM3 DAVIS was subsequently transferred to the 67th Evacuation Hospital, Qui Nhon, RVN. Initial injuries were multiple shrapnel wounds of the chest, abdomen and head. BM3 Davis?s condition was very serious upon admission to the hospital and prognosis was questionable. BM3 DAVIS subsequently died at 0125H, 24 February 1967 at the 67th Evacuation Hospital, Qui Nhon, RVN as a result of wounds received. Condition directly leading to death was a cardiac arrest. A search of the immediate area for SN MOORE was conducted by additional harbor patrol units until 0004H, 23 February 1967. This search was terminated due to the tide conditions, and shallow water and was continued at first light. Upon resumption of the search, 9 units consisting of patrol craft and men on foot, covered the scene and the surrounding shore line area, continuing until 1130H, 23 February 1967 with negative results. Local Army, Navy and civilian facilities were alerted to the circumstances concerning the status of SN MOORE; as of this time SN MOORE was declared missing in action (MIA). At 0819H, 24 February 1967, SN Moore's body was recovered on the beach at the southern end of the Delong pier, located in the inner harbor at Qui Nhon. Next of kin was notified at this time as to the change of status from MIA to killed in action. Cause of death determined as asphyxiation due to submersion (drowning).
