A Note from The Virtual Wall

Until 22 December 1965 the 2nd Bn, 1st Marines provided the bulk of BLT 2/1. Golf 2/1 had lost three men on 05 Dec, and on 10/11 December Fox 2/1 lost eleven men in a bitter fight near Que Son. On the 18th it was again Golf 2/1's turn; they had two men killed in action and three "died of wounds" on 18/19 December:
  • Cpl Donald C. Crutchley, Baltimore, MD (DoW 12/18/1965)
  • Cpl Joseph M. Thimm, Armada, MI (DoW 12/18/1965)
  • LCpl Gregory Jeremicz, Philadelphia, PA (KIA 12/18/1965)
  • LCpl Clifford L. Whipple, Downey, CA (KIA 12/18/1965)
  • Pfc Kenneth K. Huffer, Kempton, IN (DoW 12/19/1965)
The Virtual Wall cannot determine if all five deaths resulted from a single engagement.
