On 05 April 1969 India, Kilo, and Lima Companies, 3/1 Marines, were conducting sweeps in Quang Nam Province. At 1120, Lima began a river crossing and found themselves taking fire from a treeline on the opposite side of the river. India 3/1 was in a position to take the enemy in the flank and proceeded to do so - but by 1330 had found the enemy well entrenched and willing to fight. India 3/1 pressed the attack and by 1500 had forced the NVA to withdraw, leaving 72 bodies behind. The assault had been costly, though, with 9 men killed and 32 wounded in the action - and one of the wounded died later in the day. The dead were 2ndLt Steven E. Donaldson, Peabody, MA 2ndLt William S. Geary, Roslyn, PA HM3 William E. Boone, Tuskegee, AL (H&S with India 3/1) LCpl Stephen A. Daniel, Waco, TX LCpl Paul R.

Thank you Marine for your faithful devotion to this great nation and to our Corps.

THE WALL Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives
"War drew us from our homeland In the sunlit springtime of our youth. Those who did not come back alive remain in perpetual springtime -- forever young -- And a part of them is with us always." --- Author Unknown --- God Bless  You
