PFC Ralph E. Moore was a rifleman assigned to Company B, 2nd
Battalion, 35th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division. On May 3, 1967, Moore was
serving as the pointman on a fire team on a search and destroy mission in
Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam. As Moore crossed a hedgerow, members of
his unit were knocked down by the blast of what was believed to be an
exploding mine.

When the unit organized a search for Moore, he was not located. His wallet and helmet liner were found some distance from the site but nothing else was found associated with Moore.

It was speculated that the mine, which may have been as large as a 250 pound explosive device, detonated at or near Moore's position and that the effects located had actually been blown off him, and that no remains would ever be found. Although it was believed that Moore was dead, the possibility of finding remains at some future time was not ruled out.
