Name:  William Ryan  Jan 03, 2020


In the beginning of 1969 I was injured by the back-blast of a claymore mine which exploded in a natural cover fire off the approach end of the active runway where the enemy had penetrated the base perimeter during the 1968 Tet offensive. I was in that location to extinguish that fire, and my injury was witnessed by security police from the blockhouse guarding that area.

If you can find anyone in your organization who witnessed this incident, or who knew of the mine being placed there as part of the base perimeter defenses, please ask them to contact me to assist in my claim for that injury which blew off the tips of the little and ring fingers of my left hand.

My home phone is: 253-582-2480, (Lakewood, Washington state) and my best contact time is 0800-1000 hours, PDTime.

My email is:

Thank you for your time,and for the notice you placed in the Nov/Dec. DAV magazine.

I am looking for any information for my late father in law John (Jack) Bernard Norton, from Staten Island New York.

He served with the 377th SPS at Tan Son Nhut Air Base from December 1968 - December 1969.
