On August 19, 1968, CPL Brandenburg died in Quang Nam Province, RVN, after suffering a fatal gunshot wound to the head under unknown circumstances. The Marines coded his death an accidental homicide. A 1990 newspaper account of his death reported that he was pulled from a river with his hands tied behind his back and had suffered a gunshot wound to the back of his head.

    Dear CPL Steven Keith Brandenburg, 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.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
