YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!

Dear Private First Class Norris ~ You Are Not Forgotten!
This is the 3rd year, on the anniversary of your passing, that I ran a mile with you in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace, Dear Brother.

Each year since September 2015, at the annual 5th Division Army reunion, members of the Society of the Fifth Division, U.S Army remember the 514 soldiers from the 1st Brigade, 5th Division, who were Killed in Action in Vietnam. You are among the soldiers remembered. You Are Not Forgotten!

Final Mission of PFC David L. Norris

The 1st Brigade, 5th Infantry Division was dispatched to South Vietnam after the Tet Offensive (1968) to replace a U.S. Marine Corps unit. The brigade, consisting of one battalion each of infantry, mechanized infantry and armor, served from July 1968 until 1971 defending the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in northern Quang Tri Province. Combat units included the 1st Battalion, 61st Infantry (Mechanized). On the evening of December 12, 1970, a member of a patrol from A Company, 1/61st, was wounded, either by a booby trap or anti-personnel mine one kilometer south of Con Thien (Hill 158). The patrol, while evacuating the wounded man in the dark, inadvertently entered an old U.S. minefield detonating an undetermined number of anti-personnel mines. Six A/1-61st troopers were killed, and two others were wounded. The cruel, impersonal nature of the war did not discriminate in the incident: the lost personnel included two Latinos, two Blacks, and two whites, all PFC’s. They were PFC Alvaro Barbosa, PFC Barry E. Clark, PFC Luther Green Jr., PFC Carlos Rivera Jr., PFC David L. Norris, and PFC Michael K. Woodcock. The two survivors were evacuated to the 18th Surgical Hospital in Quang Tri city. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

we will remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
