I was there - Tom Skelly

We were on a dry stream bed, when we detected NVA dug in on the right. One platoon tried to flank the machine gun position while the rest of us laid down suppressing fire. Two GIs were shot trying to flank them. One was Benny. We pulled off the dry stream and blew a hasty chopper pad for the medivac. The WIA were air lifted out. I don't have any pictures of Benny - I had only been in-country for less than a month at the time.

Thank You

Dear Major Benjamin Maldonado-Aguilar, I hope your photo is put here because this is wall of faces and yours should be here. Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. The 52nd anniversary of the start of your tour is soon, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Time passes quickly, but it is an unusual time. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

You are not Forgotten

Benjamin: You gave the Ultimate Sacrifice.
If any Family members or Friends of Benjamin reads this I am looking for a Picture of him to send to W.DC. For the the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.
It would be nice to have a Picture of him to put with his Name.
