Ground Casualty

PFC Larry D. Austin was a wire and cable technician serving with A Company, 326th Engineer Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. On June 29, 1968, Austin was at Camp Eagle, the headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division, located seven kilometers (4.2 miles) southeast of Hue in Thua Thien Province, RVN. At approximately 8:00 PM, he visited two enlisted friends on guard duty at Bunker 23. Around midnight, Austin exited the bunker and fell asleep on a cot. At 6:00 AM, one of the enlisted men tried unsuccessfully to wake him. Medical personnel were notified who arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene about 30 minutes later. His body was transported to a dispensary on base where medical staff made an official pronunciation of death, listing the cause as “unknown.” When the Army released a final casualty report four months later, it claimed toxicological studies failed to reveal the cause of death. Austin was 20 years old. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Larry D Austin, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
