I was referred to your website by a friend of mine, John F. Dunn, Captain, USMC Retired. He thought you might be able to steer me in the right direction with regard to the following:
In 1970 I served with the USAFSS 6924th Security Squadron at DaNang Air Base. On each side of our compound were MAG outfits, the 13th and the 11th. I do not remember if these were fixed wing outfits or not. On April 8, 1970 our compound took four direct 122 rocket hits, killing a young Airman named Paul Anthony and wounding many others. One of the Marines, I believe from MAG 13, made a valiant effort to provide assistance that night by climbing our compound fence (which was a top secret secured area) over consentantina and barbed wire at great risk to himself.
I am now one the of the National Vice President's of our 6924th Heritage Association and our organization would like to reach out and thank this individual (we don't have a name) for his brave efforts that night. Our Gold Star Mother, Mrs. Willie May Anthony, still lives while in her 80's and I am sure she would like to thank this Marine who tried to save her son.
Any help you could give on this would be greatly appreciated.
