JACK DENNIS RENFRO WAS A DISTINGUISHED GRADUATE OF THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY AT ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND IN THE CLASS OF 1962 WHO WAS LOST AS THE RESULT OF AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT.
Ground Casualty
LT Jack D. Renfro was a Supply Staff Corps member serving with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 6 (NMCB-6). On November 7, 1966, LT Renfro was involved in a vehicle accident on the roadways near Da Nang, Quang Nam Province, RVN. The jeep he was traveling in was in a fender-bender with a small utility vehicle driven by a Vietnamese national. Both vehicles parked on the side of the narrow road, and Renfro and his driver stood in the street to talk to the other driver. Traffic was moving slowly past the accident scene when a 25-ton U.S. Navy dump truck approached carrying a load of rocks from the Da Nang crusher pit. As the dump truck squeezed by at under 5 mph, Renfro, focused on his conversation, suddenly turned and moved into the path of the massive truck. He was fatally injured after being run over by its huge tires. Chaos ensued, and U.S. MPís arrived on the scene. They removed Renfroís body and took away the driver of the dump truck. He was later criminally charged in the incident and a court-martial was conducted; however, investigators later ruled that the driver was not at fault in the case.
