Remembering and honoring my brother

My brother, Steve, died in the States on January 9, 1972 as a result of injuries sustained in friendly fire in August of 1969. Steve's life and death have had profound effects on my life. My family and I are proud that his name was added to The Wall after its initial dedication. We would be pleased to share memories of Steve.

Steve's death

Steve's death
The bio here says he died in Vietnam in 1969.
That's not accurate. He lost his leg due to friendly
fire (didn't even get a purple heart) in August of
1969 when he was really short. He had only a few
weeks to go before DEROS.

I spoke to him while he was convalescing in a
Veterans' Hospital, but will always regret that I
didn't make the effort to get out and see him
in those first couple of years back.

He died of complications from the amputation
back home in Convoy Ohio. I'm not sure of the
year, but it was around 1972.
