LCPL THOMAS PATRICK MAHONEY III
Lance Corporal Thomas Patrick Mahoney III, who joined the U.S.
Marine Corps from California, was a member of Company B of the
1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division. He was
stationed at an outpost in the vicinity of Hill 881 in the Quang
Tri Province, South Vietnam, (GC) XD 773 441. On July 6, 1968,
he was shot and killed by the enemy while outside the perimeter
of his outpost. His fellow marines heard the gunfire and his
cries for help, and an element was dispatched to investigate.
They located LCpl Mahoney’s body at the bottom of the hill, but
heavy enemy fire made recovering the remains impossible. Lance
Corporal Mahoney's remains have not been located since, or
identified among remains returned to U.S. custody after the war.
Today, Lance Corporal Mahoney is memorialized on the Courts of
the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
