BUCN Robert A. O’Connor was a construction worker serving with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 58 (NMCB-58) located at Camp Shields at the Chu Lai Airfield complex in Quang Tin Province, RVN. At approximately 5:45 AM on August 12, 1969, six enemy 122mm rockets impacted near Camp Shields. One of the projectiles made a direct hit on berthing hut #511 which was occupied by BUCN O’Connor and others. O’Connor suffered fatal injuries in the blast. Another nine sailors were wounded.
