There was only one (1) casualty from L/3/5 during Jan 1-5:
L/Cpl Glen KLEIN on 01/04/71. He was wounded from a booby-trapped grenade 11km NE of Hiep Duc village, evac'd to the USS Sanctuary, and died of wounds later that day. He was in the 1st Plt.
However, on 01/06/71, there were 2 more in the same general area:
PfcFrederick BALDAUP - 3rd Plt - by a sniper
L/Cpl Gary BOECK - small-arms fire.
I can send you the Unit logs, and help with your December/70 questions.
The two names, PFC Fredrick Baldauf & L/CPL Gary Boeck , are the names I was looking for. Would appreciate the unit logs that you mentioned. The dates are a little off from what I remember, but this did more than bring a tear to my eyes.Thanks to Bruce S.,Rebecca C. and the rest that worked on finding this info for me.
thanks sooo much.
