    Sgt. Walangitang migrated here from the Netherlands, but was born in Indonesia. If you have a photograph of this hero, please post it here.

    He was a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest in peace, soldier, in the arms of God and the angels.

    Benjamen: You made the Ultimate Sacrifice.

    If any Family members or Friends of Benjamen reads this, I am looking for a picture of him to send to W.DC for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. It would be nice to have a picture of him to put with his name. Military or H.S. picture will do.

    Thank You Jim Sawmiller

    I remember that hot August night. I had been to midnight chow and was visiting Bob Kuzmicki when the rocket hit. I believe the gooks were trying to hit the new theater. Instead they hit directly next to Ben’s barracks. Bob and I both ended up on the floor. We and many others scrambled to clear the mess and help those we could.

    I’ve ridden a motorcycle since before Da Nang and now ride with Patriot Guard Riders. Embroidered on my vest is: “Remembering: Benjamin T. Walangitang, USAF, KIA, Vietnam”. I can never forget!

    Ben is interred at Arlington National Cemetery Section 51 Site 2966.
