Francis in 2/1 Marines Golf Co. Charlie Sqd.

After all these years. I, Joe Jesse Aguilera came across old negatives. Francis, I took this last picture of you kneeling next to our temporary shelter & shared a fox hole not shown on top a hill. A few hours later, we were picked for night patrols. Fate intervened, I was picked w/ 4 other Marines to a listening post at the end of Dong Ha runway. Francis was picked with another new Marine rifleman (passenger) & Navy corpsman (driver). For a 3-man night rat patrol with LIGHTS on. We saw Francis & crew 2 or 3 times? at a distance patrolling the only dirt highway in our area. Then nothing, we did not here the explosion. We went back to camp. Was told, Francis & crew were ambushed. A satchel charge thrown by waiting NVA on the edge of a low cliff. Francis & other Marine died instantly. Navy Corpsman survived but very critical. I pray for all the fallen. You’re never forgotten my friend
