A Note from The Virtual Wall

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 3/1 suffered another loss as well - LCpl Jimmie L. Forrest of Winona, MS, assigned to Kilo 3/1, was hit and killed by a bomb fragment during an air strike on a separate group of NVA soldiers.
