1967 DCR Report:
On 7 March, three Seabees, EOC John Haines, CE3 Larry Riddle, and CM3 Robert Kasper from NMCB-4 were killed when their jeep, the lead vehicle in a truck convoy traveling from An Hoa to Camp Hoover, struck and detonated a pressure type mine. As a result of the incident, steel plating was installed of several trucks as a protective measure. Ten days later one of these struck a mine; although the truck was heavily damaged, the two persons in the cab only received minor injuries.
