While on combat patrol in the vicinity of Loc Phuoc hamlet in Dai Loc District PFC Bartholomew stepped on a pressure activating device which caused an AP (Anti-Personnel) mine believed to have been a 155 mm artillery round to detonate. The explosion killed the young Marine as a result of multi fragmention wounds.
