From his nephew,
A Note from The Virtual WallOn 06 May 1970 Fire Support Base Henderson, about 9 nautical miles south-southwest of Camp Carroll, was occupied by elements of the 2nd Battalion, 501st Infantry, as well as artillerymen. FSB Henderson came under attack, first by heavy mortar fire, then assault by a North Vietnamese Army battalion. When Henderson was relieved 30 American servicemen were dead and two were missing.
Charlie Company had two dead - SP4 Antle and a medic, SP4 Melvin Bowman of Iva, SC. Both men received posthumous promotions to Sergeant.
The two missing men were E Company's SP4 Refugio T. Teran, Westland, Michigan, and A Company's PFC Larry G. Kier of Omaha, Nebraska. Both men were carried as Missing in Action, and promoted while in that status, until the Secretary of the Army approved presumptive Findings of Death for them. And so matters stood for three decades.
