The database page for Gordon Joseph Norman
PFC Gordon J. Norman was a member of B Battery, 2/13th Arty. In December 1969 B Battery was stationed at Fire Support Base Jerri near Bu Dop in War Zone C. I was Executive Officer of A Battery at this time, and was not acquainted with PFC Norman. The facts in this memorial are found in the December 1969 edition of "Dragon Chatter", the official newsletter published by 2nd Battalion 13th Artillery.
In addition to PFC Norman, several other members of 2nd Battalion 13th Artillery died at either FSB Jerri or Bu Dop on this Task Force operation. PFC Charles E. Fulks was a casualty of small arms fire at FSB Jerri on 7 December 1969. SSG Edward Neal died at Bu Dop from mortar fire on 2 December 1969. SSG Reginald W. Plummer died from wounds clearing unexploded ordnance at Bu Dop on 9 December 1969.
Rest in Peace, PFC Norman. You are remembered by the Red Dragon Clan.
