Last Known Activity

To the family of John Spencer Bailey, Posted on 1/30/02 - by Charles W. Green: John was assigned to my platoon (1st Platoon, Co D, 1st Bn, 27th Infantry "Wolfhounds") on July 21, 1969. We were then engaged in securing a large village along with an ARVN Company.Each squad manned a bunker at the periphery and the Command Post was in a house within the village. It was too late in the day to assign John to a squad, he stayed overnight at the CP. We came under attack during the night in which most of us were wounded. John died from blood loss at a severe thigh wound. He was the first fatal casualty in the 4 months I was Platoon Sgt. We always leave a tribute to him at Panel 30W of The Wall. He will always be in the hearts of we who survived. PSG Charles W Green, 1317 Fletcher Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46203 ("Rock")
