A Note from The Virtual Wall

On 06 May 1970 Fire Support Base Henderson, about 9 nautical miles south-southwest of Camp Carroll, was occupied by elements of the 2nd Battalion, 501st Infantry, as well as artillerymen. FSB Henderson came under attack, first by heavy mortar fire, then assault by a North Vietnamese Army battalion. When Henderson was relieved 30 American servicemen were dead and two were missing.

Charlie Company had two dead - SP4 Antle and a medic, SP4 Melvin Bowman of Iva, SC. Both men received posthumous promotions to Sergeant.

The two missing men were E Company's SP4 Refugio T. Teran, Westland, Michigan, and A Company's PFC Larry G. Kier of Omaha, Nebraska. Both men were carried as Missing in Action, and promoted while in that status, until the Secretary of the Army approved presumptive Findings of Death for them. And so matters stood for three decades.

FORMER MIAS LAID TO REST - Spc. Refugio Teran and Pfc. Larry Kier, both listed as missing in action from the Vietnam War 32 years ago, were laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery on April 19.

Both soldiers were members of the 101st Airborne Division stationed at Fire Support Base Henderson in Quang Tri province in South Vietnam. When their base was overrun on May 6, 1970, only Teran and Kier were unaccounted for of the 32 Americans killed. Their bodies were discovered in 1993 and sent to the U.S. Army's Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii where they were identified. The families were informed on January 15, 2002.
