Go, SGT Elias!

I admire your duty, loyalty, and attention to detail out there. If you really were shot by your own, and ran like in the movie, you had a bold, brave spirit that kept your body alive...RIP..

Final Mission of SGT Juan A. Elias

SGT Juan A. Elias and PFC Donald Miller were members of E Company (LRRP), 52nd Infantry, 1st Cavalry Division. On May 21, 1968, their team was rigging a grenade as a booby trap on an enemy trail in Thua Thien Province, RVN, when it accidentally exploded, fatally injuring PFC Miller and seriously wounding SGT Elias. Elias was evacuated to a naval hospital ship where he succumbed to his wounds on May 29, 1968. A third member of the team, SGT Larry Curtis, lost an eye in the incident. Donald Miller was posthumously promoted to corporal by the Army. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and wikipedia.org]
