Never forgotten

As a college student I got Robert Herreid’s bracelet. He was 4 months older than me & was listed as MIA one day after my 22nd birthday. Here I am now almost 75 & I’ve kept this bracelet for 53 years. I ponder all the life experiences I have had that this young man didn’t. Coincidently I met some folks on a cruise all from Aurora, IL. & thought of him. Prayers continue for you & your family all these years later.

Final Mission of SP5 Robert D. Herreid

On October 12, 1968, demolitions specialist SP5 Robert D. Herreid was an advisor to the 47th Mobile Strike Force Company during an operation on the Nui Coto mountain area in Chau Doc Province, South Vietnam. When the unit was advancing up the mountain, the unit was blasted by heavy bunker fire and withdrew to a pagoda, where they set up a defensive perimeter. During the initial fire fight, Herreid's Cambodian radio operator stated that he had seen Herreid get hit in the chest and fall to the ground dead, and he gave Herreid's weapon to the commanding officer. Nguyen Van Liet and other soldiers said Herreid was shot in the left temple and was last seen lying by a leafless mangrove tree. Other operations in and through the area failed to locate him. In 1974, while trying to locate the site, an inhabitant of the area claimed that he had been with Herreid when he fell. He took U.S. officials to the spot in question, which was searched several times, but a gravesite was never found. [Taken from pownetwork.org]
