My father remembers you from his hometown in Mexico.

Speaking of Veterans day this weekend my father and uncles where discussing my fathers draft notice in the late 60's and my father recalls a hometown friend that was home on leave in Jalisco, Mexico during Easter (semana santa) in 1970 and how he heard he had passed in Vietnam soon there after. My father also remembers how athletic he was and how he had a foot race with my fathers cousin in March of 1970. I had head this story numerous times since I also served in the Army.
When I asked my dad his name, he stated 'Severiano Rios' I searched it online and I landed here.. his home location and burial site matched what my father stated.
My father is from a neighboring city in Mexico where Severiano was from. My father stated how brave those that where drafted and answered the call where since many didnt.

Renegade Woods

On 02 Apr 1970 a recon team from F Company, 75th Rangers, was sent into an area called the "Renegade Woods" to investigate reports of a large NVA/VC force. The Rangers found the enemy - all they could handle and more besides. Companies B and C, 2nd Bn, 27th Infantry, were inserted as the initial reaction force; A/2/27 joined in the late afternoon, and two additional companies from 2/22nd Infantry came in the next day. By the time the fighting ended several days later, over 100 NVA/VA troops from the 271st NVA/VC Regiment were dead, a large base camp was in American hands, and twelve American soldiers were dead:
