Final Mission of PFC Michael F. Dalton

PFC Michael F. Dalton was a rifleman assigned to Second Platoon, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 27th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On May 14, 1968, PFC Dalton was carrying the radio while on patrol in an area approximately four miles northwest of Dien Ban village in Quang Nam Province, RVN. Around mid-afternoon, an estimated four Viet Cong opened fire on the patrol, sending the Marines scrambling behind a dike next to a rice paddy. Dalton reportedly stood up to shake off the fourteen-pound PRC-25 radio he was carrying on his back when an enemy round struck him at the base of the neck. He was killed instantly. The patrol returned fire at which the enemy broke contact and fled. Dalton was carried back to the Battalion Command Post where he was later transfer to Graves Registration.

Proud family

Michael was my uncle and although I was not quite a year old when he was killed, I am very proud of his service to his country and his family. I am very honored that his siblings handed down the family scrapbook detailing the accounts of his service and the memorial remembrances left by so many people upon his passing.
