Last Known Activity

http://www.pownetwork.org/bios/i/i350.htm On November 19, 1967, SP4 Jack L. Croxdale, radio operator, PFC Benjamin D. DeHerrera, squad leader, and Sgt. Donald Iandoli, squad leader were members of Company C, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry on a Search and Destroy mission in South Vietnam. At 1435 hours, Companies A, C and D, all part of the 503rd Infantry, were in heavy contact with an unknown sized North Vietnamese force and were surrounded. During the operation, Sgt. Iandoli was wounded and was seen in the Company C command post area, along with SP4 Croxdale and PFC DeHerrera. At 1850 hours, a U.S. Marine bomber dropped a 500 pound bomb which hit the command post area in error, resulting in additional casualties. No remains were recovered that day because of intense enemy activity. The following day, a search of the area was conducted. The remains of Croxdale, DeHerrera and Iandoli were identified and tagged. However, only the remains of DeHerrera and Croxdale were reported to have been placed on a helicopter en route to Dak To. Following the attack, a 3-day search of the battle area was conducted without success in locating Iandoli. However, as of January 4, 1968, the U.S. Army Mortuary at Than San Ut, South Vietnam, had not processed or identified any remains of DeHerrera, Croxdale or Iandoli, and the location of those remains is unknown.

Information as listed on all sights regarding tour of duty is incorrect. Don went to Nam in May of 1967 and was listed as MIA on November 19, 1967, one month to-the-day- after his 21st birthday.
