We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Misidentified photograph

SGT (posthumous promotion from SP4) Milton Cook (no middle name) of Detroit, Michigan, enlisted on 30 May 1967, began his tour in Vietnam on 21 December 1967 and was KIA while serving in Company A, 2nd Battalion, 39th Infantry, 1st Brigade, 9th Infantry Division.

The photograph of the soldier firing a machinegun is an official US Army photograph taken by Department of the Army Special Photographic Office photographer Robert C. Lafoon. As part of his official duties as a photographer he recorded the photo as being of PFC Milton L. Cook of Baltimore, Maryland, serving in Company C, 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry (Mechanized), 2nd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division. He also recorded the date of the photograph as 8 January 1967, more than 11 months before SGT Milton Cook arrived in Vietnam and 4 months before he even enlisted in the Army.

Clearly they have been confused with each other due to their similar names, but the man pictured is definitely not the Milton Cook who was killed in action. Hopefully the incorrect photograph can be removed and a proper photograph found for SGT Milton Cook.
