Ground Casualty

PFC Michael J. Pynnonen was an infantryman serving with A Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. Approximately half way through his tour of duty in Vietnam, PFC Pynnonen was granted an emergency leave via Congressional order because his mother was suffering from terminal ovarian cancer. Pynnonen was home four days when he died in a Rochester, MI, hospital on March 29, 1970, from malaria he had contracted in Vietnam. He was 22 years-old. His family was later informed that he should have been provided a 30-day supply of malaria medication when leaving Vietnam. He had not received any medication.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Michael Jonas Pynnonen, 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
