Glenn Ernest Tubbs
MIA – Lost during river crossing assumed drowned.
Carl Franquet stated:
I was on the operation. Glenn was in 1st Exploitation Co, not an RT. We were conducting a patrol base operation wherein we would receive an RT at an LZ, then our company would establish river crossing sites for the RTs to infil into Cambodia I was not at the crossing site when he drowned because I was pulling patrol base security. We took turns setting up crossing sites. I had been across several times doing what Glenn was doing when he drowned.
The comment that he was being attacked by alligators is incorrect. That misconception came about because we saw crocodiles on the opposite bank of the Ton Le Son river about a kilometer south of the crossing site where he drowned while we were on a ground search for him.
There has been a lot of misinformation about the circumstances of Glenn’s loss. Please refer to my comments on page 454 of Col Fred Lindsey’s book, “SECRET GREEN BERET COMMANDOS IN CAMBODIA”.
