I was there.

I had come in off perimeter defense and finished breakfast in the mess hall. As I was walking out the door the first round hit. There were one or two more explosions after that. I was on the ground and saw him walking down the road toward the company area when a rocket hit near him. We were all shaken by the event. A lot of us were crying. Several guys in our company had already been killed or seriously wounded during the year I was there. We were Company A, 121st Signal Battalion, 1st Infantry Division. We called ourselves the "first of the twenty-first" because we got shot at so much. The company commander held a memorial service in front of the CP. A field cross was erected with his M16/bayonet, helmet and boots. When I went to Washington for the memorial dedication, his was the first name I looked for. I later wrote to the family and spoke with his brother, I believe his name was Don. I mention this all in my memoir: "Reflections on the Vietnam War: A Fifty-Year Journey." It's been over 50 years, and it still hurts. I offer my greetings and best wishes to Darryl's family and friends. May he live on in loving memory.
