As received from an American friend -Dan Bullock......Although no one knew it, was 14 years old.

While making a second attempt to retrieve depleted ammunition, during an attack at An Hoa combat base he was shot multiple times and died instantly.

He was 15, at this time, making him the youngest US KIA, in the Vietnam war.

When he was to be buried, his true age was discovered.

Because he used a false birth certificate, making him older, his enlistment was deemed fraudulent.

He was buried unceremoniously and laid in an unmarked grave for 21 years.

Talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael heard of this, and paid for a proper head stone.
