DEAR PFC ANDINO.
I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE HAS A PHOTO OF YOU AND POSTS IT. THIS WALL OF FACES NEEDS YOUR FACE. AS A NEW YORKER LIKE YOU, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A GRUNT. BUT ONLY 18 WAS TOO YOUNG, ESPECIALLY SO NEAR YOUR BIRTHDAY. IT IS THE 9/11 WEEKEND WHEN WE HONOR THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES, IT IS A GOOD TIME TO HONOR YOU TOO. REST IN PEACE.

Ground Casualty

CPL Alexander A. Kaopuiki Jr. was an infantryman assigned to First Platoon, B Company, 4th Battalion, 21st Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On August 8, 1969, his unit was in the vicinity of LZ Debbie, approximately 7 miles west of Duc Pho, in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. CPL Kaopuiki was killed in a grenade accident when he tried to throw away a live grenade and save his fellow soldiers of first platoon. He was commended for this heroic act, reacting to the incident by trying to protect his comrades instead of diving for cover to save himself. This was evident later when it was observed he had lost his arm in the blast. Two others were also killed in the explosion, PFC Nelson Andino and SP4 Stanley B. Hojnowski.
