Scott Henry was a classmate of mine at Loara High School in Anaheim California... He was a fun-loving guy who was friendly to all. His pride and joy was his '56 gun-metal grey Ford ... he left behind family and a lot of friends who miss him. Scott and I were not close friends but classmates and aquaintances. I learned of his loss when I returned from my tour in Northern Thailand. Scott was a good guy and I just want people to know he will always be remembered. I have visited his place on the Viet Nam Wall in Washington D.C. and also several times on the moving wall which has travelled throughout the U.S. Scott, you are not forgotten.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

The 4th Infantry Division's Operational Report for the period Aug-Oct 1968 contains the following entry for 14 August:
"At 1820H [6:20 pm] in vicinity AT815200 3 & 4 [Platoons], A Co, 3d Battalion, 12th Infantry received a heavy weapons attack which included 75mm recoilless rifle and 82mm mortar fire. FAC [Forward Air Control] aircraft received heavy ground fire and was forced to return to Dak To with three hits."
That laconic entry doesn't tell the full story; costly to both sides, the engagement near FSB 29, 7 kilometers southwest of Ben Het, resulted in the deaths of 14 US soldiers:
  • A Co, 3rd Bn, 12th Infantry
    • 1LT Leo L. Hadley, Manhattan, KS
