Dong Ha 20 June 1968 Ammo Dump Hit

I spent 10 hours trapped in a grave with 3 other Marines. Artillery from North Vietnam hit the ammo dump at 1600 on 20 June 1968. Is anyone else out there? I was with Maintenance Company, Engineer Platoon, FLSG Bravo. A 2nd Lt and a volunteer crew rescued us about 8 or 10 hours later, I have connected with one other individual. If you are out ther, pop smoke.

My fireteam and I were there. Although I don’t remember how we got there from Phu Bai, we were on an LZ which was spitting distance from the ammo dump. A TV news crew had just finished interviewing all of us and was walking away, when the first explosion happened.
