  • Some gave all

    Some gave all. All gave some but you gave your life for a dream.
    Quite disturbing how you were able to enlist without any red
    flags. Regardless, you are a true patriot and deserve the recognition
    for your courage and commitment at such a young age.
    God bless your family.

  • Final Mission of PFC Dan Bullock

    Posted on 8/30/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    PFC Dan Bullock, PFC Donald W. Bunn, LCPL Larry J. Eglinsdoerfer, PFC Jason D. Hunnicutt and PFC Steven Montgomery were members of F Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, stationed at An Hoa Combat Base in Quang Nam Province, RVN. On the night of June 7, 1969, after a mortar barrage, NVA sappers attacked the base and were able to break through the perimeter at two positions. Bullock, Bunn, Eglinsdoefer, and Hunnicutt were in a bunker when satchel charges were tossed on and into the bunker. The enemy were able to infiltrate at that position, passing over the bunker and firing inside as they went past. None of the Marines were able to exit the bunker and all were killed. Montgomery was on the perimeter during the attack and died after being hit by small arms fire. The NVA attack was eventually repulsed, the enemy leaving behind 19 dead. The next morning, Marines removed the bodies of their dead comrades from the bunker. Bullock was only 15 years old when he was killed, the youngest American to die in the war.

  • Thank You

    Dear PFC Dan Bullock,
    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. I had written about you in my research. As the youngest American killed in combat, you have become a legend. You will be forever remembered, but in my heart, I wish you had lived to grow up, vote, have a drink, fall in love. 15 is far too young. Semper Fi Marine. Watch over our nation, it still needs your courage. God bless you always, and rest in peace in the arms of the angels.

  • Remarkable War Hero

    Posted on 6/13/17 - by Leonida Wafula
    I am a Kenyan and was doing some research on the Vietnam War when I came across Dan Bullock's name. His story is that of a remarkable young man who chose to stay and fight for his country at a time when many adults were fleeing to Canada to avoid being drafted. I salute this young man. An unsung hero but one who is honored nevertheless.
