Information wanted on Ralf Saunders, KIA 11-6-67

#1 Postby Phuloi68 » Wed Jan 25, 2006 7:10 am

I am seeking anyone who can tell me what happened on that day, 6 Nov 67, to my friend and classmate. I was with US Army in southern part of Nam at the time and did not learn about his death till about a month and a half after it happened. He was killed in Quang Nam province. I had heard it was an ambush and that is all I know.
Welcome home to all my Brothers..

Which 2/5 unit was Ralph assigned? I have the Command Chronologies for 2/5 that may have some relevant info as to what happened. Give me some specifics as to Company and platoon and I will see what I can find. I can also just send you a copy of the Chronologies for November 67 and you can review them yourself. Just let me know

That would be the date of the first day of Operation ESSEX.
I have checked the KIA listings for Fox, Hotel & Golf Companies
and he's not listed. Don't have one for Echo. He could have been
one of theirs or even a member on 1st Bn 5th Marines instead.

The only info I have was from an article in the local paper about his death.
All it said was he was a radio operator with the Tactical Air Command Patrol, attached to the 2nd Bn/5th Marines and was KIA 6 Nov 67 during action in Quang Nam.
