Brother Troopers I need your help!!
My name is Glenn Blankenship -- I was with the 14th Combat Engineers and
attached to the 2/7 from December 66 to April 67. I am trying get verification
information to help with a claim and I need to verify two incidents that
happened around the Phan Thiet area:
(1) Around Febuary 67, during a search for booby traps in the Phan Thiet area
two troopers from the 2/7 hit a trip wire and detonated a trapped artillery
shell and were killed or seriously injured. Shortly after we discovered a 105mm
connected to a trip wire which we blew in place.

(2) Around March 67, myself and a buddy were sent to LZ Virginia during the
course of our assignment we were ordered by a 2/7 officer to help with a
detail. this detail was to disinter several NVA that had been killed several
weeks previous and search them for documents. If anyone witnessed,or has
knowledge of either of these incidents please contact me:
