DCR Report: from 10/28/65:
…At approximately 0006, NMCB-9 came under heavy Viet Cong 60mm mortar and machine gun attack wounding 93 men of which two later died, SD3 Restituto Adenir and BUL2 Donald Haskins. The Viet Cong over ran the NSA Hospital construction site and destroyed eight of the almost completed buildings with demolition charges.

He died 29 October 1965 at the Third Marine Medical Battalion, Danang, Vietnam; Result of injuries sustained on 28, October 1965 at the D.S. Navel Mobile Construction Battalion Nine camp, Danang, Vietnam during mortar attack. (from The Coffelt Group)

Restituto was the first member of MCB-9 to die from wounds sustained in a mortar and ground attack at 12:20am 28 Oct 1965. He was running thru officer country to his fighting position when he was bracketed by mortar fire. I didn't know him but he was still a shipmate. We were in Danang East on China Beach building the Hospital which was later made into a TV program.
A shipmate.
