Sgt Jere Rhone Lowe
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 3, 1949
Death: Oct. 14, 1969, Vietnam

2nd Platoon, A Company,
1st Battalion (mechanized), 50th Infantry
Specialist 4th Class, E4, Posthumous Promotion to SGT
1st Field Force Vietnam,
Binh Thuan Province, Republic of Vietnam

SGT Lowe was killed as the 2nd Platoon of "A" Company entered an area in a bamboo forest that was literally covered with booby traps. Besides Lowe, Cpl Burton Eugene Small was killed in this landscape that was marked by the Communists "Keep Out".

It was a common practice in the southern extremities of South Vietnam to try to entice American forces into these traps. Soldiers there learned to avoid these mine fields...but in southern II Corps where the 50th Infantry operated, hard lessons were learned by trying to "investigate" this area. The forest was named "Stitt's Woods" after the Forward Air Controller who called in an F-4 Jet Air Strike to obliterate the hazard.
Sadly, two lives were lost here and 9 additional soldiers were wounded.
