Last Known Activity
A1C Paul Anthony arrived in county on 3 April 1970.  He was killed by a 140mm rocket while on duty, during "mids" (midnight shift), in the Communications Center of the 6924th Security Service base near Danang on 8 April 1970,. This was his first night on operations. He was the only 6924th man killed in the war in Vietnam.

Paul left a young wife.

Notes:
Efforts were made by Danang Marine Air Group corpsmen to assist in the care of Paul. The Marine corpsmen had entered the area by climbing over the barbed wire enclosure into the classified area, at great risk to themselves.

Also injured in this attack was his shift supervisor, SSgt. Ralph J. Jones, who was seriously wounded. He was med'evaced to the States. He was so injured that he was medically retired after many months of treatment and rehab. He passed away 28 July  2014 in Augusta, Georgia. He had been an active member of the 6924th SS Association.


Paul was interred in Evergreen Cemetery, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Notes:  Members of the 6924th Security Squadron Association established The Paul Wayne Anthony AFROTC Scholarship in Paul's honor at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
