A Note from The Virtual WallOn 16 May 1970 C Company, 1/5th Infantry, was on stand-down at the Tay Ninh base camp. In the evening, while Company members were waiting for a show to start, a soldier from the 125th Signal Battalion fired his M-16 into the gathering. Two men were killed, SGT Joe E. Raber of Holden, Missouri, and CPL Gary R. White. A number of others were wounded.
The soldier, SP4 James E. Paul, was later convicted by Court Martial of two counts of voluntary manslaughter and ten counts of assault to commit voluntary manslaughter.
