Those who didn't come home

I decided to go ahead and post "the accepted" list of those ASA soldiers who didn't make it back from Viet Nam. I know of some others who I believe should be included.

Note: Somewhere along the line it was decided by the Brass that there were to be no ASA units in RVN, so in a move that could only make sense to a politician, the unit names were changed from ASA to RR.

James Davis was considered to be the first member of the American Army killed on the ground in RVN. I was on orders to go with him - mine were canceled but he was left on - It really makes me think!!
