The Dong Ha Combat base came under enemy artillery fire. Camp Barnes received approximately seven rounds of enemy fire resulting in three WIAís: EO1 D.V. Baker, SK3 A.R. Wood, and SK2 W.F. Humphrey. The Camp Barnes Enlisted Menís Club suffered major damage and two pieces of construction equipment were damaged.
Petty Officer Baker and I had served
together in a number of MCB's, the latter being when he was wounded...I remembered Snake when I crafted the burn out latrines and labeled 'SNAKE'
on the small structure...JW
