Ground Casualty

SSG Robert L. King was a Unit Supply Sergeant serving with Brigade Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 196th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. While serving in the Da Nang area, King fell ill and was admitted to the 3rd Surgical Hospital in Saigon, RVN. His symptoms included renal failure, encephalitis, and bilateral pneumonia. King’s condition failed to improve, and he expired on July 11, 1971. He was thirty-four years old. Most of the diagnosed cases of encephalitis in Vietnam were caused by viruses transmitted from infected animals to humans through the bite of a mosquito or other blood-sucking insect. Following his death, King’s remains were transferred to Graves Registration personnel at the U.S. Army Mortuary at Tan Son Nhut Airbase where they were prepared for return to the United States.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Robert Lewis King, 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
