Twelve soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division died in several engagements along Route 304, near Ap Bu Nho, in Phuoc Long Province, on 09 -10 Jan 1969:

After PFC Terry's death, his family received a letter from a member of his unit containing the sentences "They killed our little medic, Juan. They shot him in the head. They also killed Snuffy."

"Our little medic, Juan" was Specialist 4 Juan Bauza-Perez; "Snuffy" probably was PFC Wilbur J. Siegrist.
