    PFC Paul D. Haydon and SP4 Samuel J. Izzard were Combat Engineers serving with D Company, 19th Engineer Battalion. On March 8, 1969, PFC Haydon and SP4 Izzard were directing traffic around a work crew at culvert 115 on Highway QL-1, northwest of Duc Pho in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. A Vietnamese civilian approached on a motorcycle who the two engineers flagged down in order to let other vehicles pass. The motorcyclist then struck an estimated 25-30 pound pressure-type mine. Haydon and Izzard were fatally injured in the blast. The Vietnamese motorcyclist was also killed. The remains of the two engineers were taken to Duc Pho. On March 10, 1969, a memorial service was conducted for the two fallen Americans at the 19th Engineer Battalion base at LZ Thunder. [Taken from]

    I did not know Sam Izzard. He was killed at the same time as my brother Paul D Haydon. I grieve for him and Paul each time I go to the wall.

    Dear SP4 Samuel Julius Izzard, 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
