    On May 7, 1969 after three days in the jungle patrolling for Viet Cong we were on our way back to Dong Tam. Dale was walking point and looking for a place to cross a small canal when a deafening explosion abruptly went off. Dale, Specialist 4 Alfonso Hernandez and myself were wounded. Dale's wounds were mortal and he died the next day at the Dong Tam Hospital. Dale I only knew you for a short time, but I will never forget you.
