Private First Class Jeffery Clinton Howard of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, died on 16 April 1978 while training with his unit, the 307th Maintenance Company, Central City, at Fort Campbell. Howard walked behind a truck, which had been parked on a gradual incline and it rolled backwards some 4 feet and pinned him between a tree and the trailer of the truck. Reportedly he had just retrieved his gas mask from the cab of the truck to put it on as a part of training and unknowingly released the hand brake before he walked behind the truck. He was born in Daviess County, Kentucky.
