Stories

These 11 Marines were all KIA June 11, 1967 in differing reports either by hostile fire or by mechanical falure of the CH64A helicopter they were in. All 11 names are adjacent to one another on the wall as they are chronilogically arranged according to their deaths. Most of the familys have had contact over the subsequent years and kindred freindships have formed between surviving brothers, spouses, children and comrades. Recovery of the crash site has not offically been completed although as of now (2008) two of the marines - Jim Moshier and James Widener - have been returned for burial with honors to their familys. A professional documentary of the events surrounding this crash, still one of the largest single incidents of loss that has remained unresolved from the entire Vietnam conflict, is being finished and may be available for viewing as early as the fall of 2008.
