In July of 1959, the Viet Cong killed two American soldiers and wounded a third in an ambush at a South Vietnamese army camp in the small town of Bien Hoa about 20 miles northeast of Saigon.

The Viet Cong had been regularly assassinating South Vietnamese officials, but except for a single 1957 incident they had refrained from attacking Americans. The Bien Hoa assault signaled that they were refraining no longer.

Killed that day were Maj. Dale Richard Buis and Master Sgt. Chester M. Ovnand. Both of the slain Americans were career military men. Born in Pender, Nebraska, in 1921, Maj. Buis had served in World War II and Korea. He’d been at Bien Hoa only two days, and the night he was killed, he was showing his new comrades pictures of his three young sons, who were back home with his wife in Imperial Beach, California. Master Sgt. Ovnand, 45, had just written a letter to his wife back in Copperas Cove, Texas. He was the first Texan casualty of the war.

This weekend, you can view their names along with 58,307 other fallen service members as part of the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall exhibit at the Camp Mabry Open House and Air Show event. The event runs April 21st and 22nd from 8AM to 5PM and is free and open to the public.
