Alan, the son of Nyla J. Turner of Castro Valley CA, and the son of Milton E. Logan Jr. step-son of Donald Turner both deceased, enlisted in the US Marine Corps on February 12, 1969 in Oakland CA. He arrived in Vietnam on October 14, 1969 and was assigned to Company G, 2d Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st MARDIV (Rein) FMF.
PFC Turner,was a non-battle casualty who required evacuation for medical treatment from the forward CP (Command Post) located northwest of Hill 800 in Que Son District of Quang Nam Province. Due to the thick jungle canopy the helicopter from HMM-364 that arrived could not land, and the extraction from the ground would have to be made with the use of a jungle penetrator hoisting the Marine onboard though the canopy. Approaching the door of the aircraft, the apparatus began to sway and hit the side of the helicopter. PFC Turner fell, or was knocked out of the apparatus, falling to his death on the ground below.
Note: US Marine Corps records indicate Alan Bradford LOGAN enlisted and served as Alan Bradford TURNER
