Fraggings in III MAF plagued both secure rear areas and forward positions. In the 1st Marine Division, 62 percent of the assaults during 1970 took place in can¬tonments near Da Nang; 38 percent occurred at com¬bat and fire support bases, observation posts, and battalion CPs. Clubs and living areas were favorite tar¬gets, with grenades typically rolled through a hut or bunker entrance or exploded against a wall. Lower-ranking enlisted men committed most flaggings, com¬monly against NCOs and junior officers.95 The mo¬tives for fragging were as varied as the tensions afflicting III MAF. A few flaggings, including the one in Maintenance Battalion, appeared to have been ra¬cially motivated. Others reflected anger and resent¬ment at a particular small-unit leader or were efforts to get rid of an incompetent or particularly aggressive commander. Many flaggings were committed under the influence of alcohol or drugs or for drug-related reasons, for example pusher-buyer disputes or intimi¬dation of informers. Probably the majority of flaggings resulted from individual personality disturbances. Brigadier General Simmons observed:
http://www.virtualwall.org/dp/PateRD01a.htm
A Note from The Virtual Wall
Corporal Ronald Pate's casualty record is coded as "C1-U-7", which translates to "Non-hostile, Died Of Other Causes - Other Accident - Ground Casualty", but the record is misleading.
Cosmas and Murray, writing in U.S. Marines in Vietnam, 1970-71, p. 364, say
"FLC [Force Logistic Command] suffered the most costly single fragging of the year on the night of 5 February, when a Marine tossed a grenade into the crowded patio of the Maintenance Battalion enlisted men's club. The resulting explosion killed one Marine and wounded 62."
The dead Marine was Corporal Pate, characterized by one friend as "a nice guy, soft spoken and wouldn't hurt a fly. He wasn't flashy like some, just a likeable ordinary guy with a down-home attitude".
Another friend objects to the "Non-hostile - other accident" classifications, saying
"I think a frag grenade over the wall at the EM club by a fellow Marine, because of hatred, would constitute hostile action! He did not die in an accident, but from an excess of hatred."
Although the Naval Investigative Service (NIS) eventually arrested four enlisted Marines in the Maintenance Battalion fragging, Marine courts-martial acquitted all four defendants.

I am trying to find anyone who may have known or served with my father in law in Vietnam. His name is Louis Richard Mazzocchi, and all I know is that he was with the 11th armored cav., don't know what unit or rank or anything, and I am not certain what years he served, but I know it was around 1961 or 62 to probably 1965 or 66...
He did not die in Vietnam, but he passed away in 2001, and my husband would really like to find someone who knew his father, and spent time with him then. If anyone out there remembers him, please e-mail me, as I would love to be able to find someone my husband could chat with about his dad. Thanks!

Here is my story.I was married on D/Day in 1970 .In July I got my greetings , in August I was in the army.I got out of basic in October and went permenent party to Patrick Air Force Base ,Florida.I was there until 21 June 1970 as I had orders for Vietnam.I came home for 30 days leave.I reported to Ft.lewis at the end of July and on the 2nd of August I was in country. They gave us a dream sheet to fill out so I put down what my job in the real world was and I got it. I was sent to 90th replacement and sent to live with the 554th engineers at Camp Smith. My daughter was born in Sept. while I was there. Now, I was a short timer when I got there so at this point I was even shorter. My unit was standing down and in February they handed me and several others orders to go home. I had less than 180 days left in the service and due to my civilian life at home I took it. I think I had something like 170 days left. I got out while the going was good.I guess you could say I was one of the lucky ones.
I want to thank all of you that served for your sacrifice.
