Ground Casualty

PVT Robert Miranda was a construction equipment repairer and PFC Danny L. Lightsey was a food service specialist, both assigned to the 523rd Engineer Company (Port Construction). They served on the 1890 Pile Driving Barge in Binh Thuy, Vinh Binh Province, out in the Delta, where new bridges were being constructed and old ones taken down. On July 22, 1971, both soldiers were injured in cooking stove accident. Reportedly, Lightsey was sent out to the barge to cook, and while attempting to light the stove with his welding torch, an explosion occurred, injuring him and Miranda. Lightsey died of his injuries three days later on July 25th. Miranda, his injuries described as burns, died August 2, 1971. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, vvmf.org, and thewall-usa.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Danny Lee Lightsey, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
