James Herbert Workman

MP James Workman and Sergeant Eugene Cox were shot and killed in Saigon, Vietnam, while conducting a curfew check at the Ivory Tower nightclub.

They discovered a drunk American sergeant celebrating with a high ranking South Vietnamese officer. When they ordered the sergeant to return to his quarters to comply with curfew rules the South Vietnamese officer became argumentative and slapped one of the MPs. The officer then fatally shot both MPs before leaving the scene in a South Vietnamese military convoy.

Three South Vietnamese officers were convicted of aggravated assault in connection with both murders.
