This info is from Cmd Chrons by H 2/26. It states 3 Marines from FLSG-A were KIA, although I located a fourth. It lists 1 USA KIA, but after checking there were no USA KIA in Thua Thien Prov that day. I am working on this as time permits but I feel 4 FLSG-A personal were KIA along with 27 others WIA. Link below to H 2/26 site.

Ref: Knippers,Haley, Caldwell & Buchanan 21 Jan 2010
Lcpl Haley is listed as a member of Supply Co. but he was a member of Maint Co. When the attack occured he was on guard duty, Cpl Buchanan & Lcpl Caldwell were on duty at the rations office. They were all killed by the same round. SSgt Knippers was hit in the SNCO billiting area.
The majority of the rounds fired that night were aimed at the FLSG-A billeting area not any strategic targets. (Correction Made) Olin Robertson
