 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
During Operation FOSTER a reconnaissance squad of Marines from Company I, were taken under heavy small arms fire by an enemy force estimated to be 40 men from a well prepared and concealed position in Phu Long village, in Duc Duc District. The Marines returned fire and called for assistance, a reaction platoon responded but was also immediately taken under heavy automatic weapons and small arms fire sustaining the majority of the casualties. The rest of India Company was committed to the engagement which lasted until darkness fell enabling the enemy to slip away from the battlefield. The Marines suffered five men killed and twelve wounded during this engagement on the sixth day of the operation.
