Birth: Apr. 11, 1947
Ontario, Canada
Death: Aug. 15, 1967
Quang Nam, Vietnam

Gordon was the son of Gordon Eadie and Edna M. Eadie, dear brother of Lynda Eadie of Detroit MI. Gordon attended the Perry Street Public School in Ottawa and was a student at the Wayne State University when he enlisted in the US Marine Corps on May 3 1966 in Detroit MI. He arrived in Vietnam on January 24 1967 and was assigned for duty to Company A, 1st MP Battalion, FMFPAC until he was reassigned to Company C, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st MARDIV (Rein) FMF on June 4, 1967.

On August 15 Company C was operating east of Hoi An in the Hieu Nhon District of Quang Nam Province on Cam Thanh Island where the men encountered numerous mines on their patrol when a man detonated the first part of the trap, a rigged 155 millimetre artillery shell which killed two men and wounded two others.

As more Marines moved in to evacuate the dead and wounded a second hidden shell of the same calibre exploded among the men. Six more were killed and eight wounded, at the end of the day ten men were killed by the hostile explosive devices planted by the enemy with the intention of killing or seriously injuring the men on patrol. LCpl Eadie was one of the casualties when he was killed as a result of shrapnel wounds from one of the hostile devices.
