A Note from The Virtual Wall

On 28 June 1967 the 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry, engaged the 93rd VC Battalion near the Dam Tra-O Lake 16 kilometers southeast of Bong Son in what came to be known as the battle of An Quang. Eight US soldiers were killed in the fighting and a ninth died the following day from wounds sustained. They were
  • B Co, 2nd Bn, 5th Cavalry
    • SGT Arnel J. Davis, Owosso, MI

  • D Co, 2nd Bn, 5th Cavalry
    • SSG Donald F. Spicer, Candor, NY
    • SGT Elwin J. Lamb, Colon, MI (DoW 06/29/1967)
    • SP4 Robert D. Snyder, Canton, OH
    • PFC Duane E. Cavarzan, Weed, CA
    • PFC David A. Moore, New Baltimore, MI

  • A Co, 1st Bn, 69th Armor
    • SGT Paul E. Hale, Nason, IL
Although 1st Bn, 69th Armor was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, 1/69's tanks were in considerable demand by other units. In this instance, A Company 1/69 was attached to the 1st Cavalry Division. Sergeant Hale was killed by a sniper's bullet.
