A Note from The Virtual WallThe 1/27 Marines' Command Chronology for July 1968 contains the following entry:
"At approximately 150330H [3:30 am, 15 June] Company B while in a defensive perimeter at AT997538 received an attack with small arms fire, automatic weapons, and B-40 rockets. The enemy attempted to execute a flank assault and penetrate the perimeter. Primarily because of an excellent defense plan and aggressive execution, the assault was repulsed. Company B suffered only 3 WIAs and inflicted a toll on the enemy of 21 NVA killed, 14 weapons and miscellaneous 782 gear captured in the action."Pfc Kinsey Davis is the only known death from the attack described.
