Vietnam War

Gio Linh was the site of the northernmost Allied position during the Vietnam war. It was under the command of the 12th Marine, and the 1967 hill commander was then USMC Major Alfred M. Gray, Jr.. who eventually retired in 1991 as General and Commandant of the USMC. The position was on highway 1 and expanded on an existing 1950-era French fort. The fort was occupied by a company of the Army of Vietnam First Division. The USMC command had a typical unit strength ranging from 200 to 600 men, depending on the believed level of ground assault risk. During the period April 1967 to September 1967 they suffered 28 killed and 200 wounded.
