A great childhood friend

Dennis was my one of my best friends. We lived around the block from each other. We did everything together with him, Danny and Kenny. Dennis was a hero to me. He overcame some immense hardships. He lives in my heart. Sadly missed. His Dad died in the 1970's. I forget when.

I will never forget you

Del,
I often think of all the good times we had together in Basic, AIT & Jumpschool before we went to the 1st Bn 5th Inf Reg 25th Div together. We all most came home together till that bad day on the 28th of December 1966. You were the last Man in the Battalion to be KIA in 1966.
With Love, Respect and Honor,
Butch Petit

Atlantic City GI Killed Fighting In S. Vietnam

Sp/4 Dennis F. Delasandro, 22, became the fourth Atlantic City man to die in Vietnam. His father, John lives at 210 Pacific ave., in Atlantic City.
The soldier was an only child. His mother died 14 months ago - two months after Dennis enlisted in the Army.
Dennis was single and had lived with his parents. He attended Atlantic City public schools. His father said he enlisted because he was going to be drafted.
"He told us in his letters that he was seeing a lot of action and was often parachuting," said the father Tuesday night: "He was over there 11 months."
The father is a laundry worker at the Shelburne Hotel and works part-time in the kitchen of Lou's Bar, 604 Atlantic ave.
"When he got out of the Army, he was planning to come home and just be a real good son for his father," said the elder Delasandro.
