Other Personnel In Incident: Morris F. Dibble; Edward C. Upner (both missing)
PFC Morris Dibble and SSgt. Edward C. Upner were squad members of a team lead by Sgt. George J. Eisenberger on a ground combat mission in Binh Duong Province, South Vietnam on December 5, 1965.
The unit came under hostile fire from what was believed to be a Viet Cong encampment, and in the first burst of fire, the three men were mortally wounded.
When the unit was able to withdraw from the combat area, it was not possible to recover Dibble, Upner and Eisenberger.
When the enemy threat abated, the squad reentered the area in an attempt to find the bodies, but they were gone.
It was generally believed that they were taken by the Viet Cong and probably buried, which was not at all an uncommon thing to do.
The three members of Company B are listed among the dead, but because their bodies were not recovered, they are also listed among the missing.
