    LCPL Edgar Acunia was a rifleman serving with A Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. On March 6, 1969, LCPL Acunia was in a night ambush position with members of his unit near Ca Lu, three miles northeast FSB Russell in Quang Tri Province, RVN. While Acunia was checking the assault lines, he was fired at by another Marine with an M16 rifle on full-automatic. Acunia was killed after being hit in the chest, face, left leg, and back. His body was removed to Graves Registration at Third Medical Battalion, then later transferred to the U.S. Army mortuary at Da Nang. An investigation into the killing took place afterwards. It was unclear whether the shooter had challenged Acunia before he opened fire. The incident was later coded an accidental homicide. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

    I was on Hill 400 the night Edgar was killed. It was a horribly tragic accident. I did not know Edgar well, only having seen him in our Company, knew his name, and that he belonged to Alpha Co 1/4. I'll never forget the night it happened, how saddened we were by his death, and the lessons it taught all of his brothers going forward. Semper Fi Edgar Acunia RIP Brother.

    Dear LCPL Edgar Acunia, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    With respect, Sir
