Ground Casualty

SP4 Walter J. Vichosky Jr. was a Food Service Specialist assigned to Headquarters & Headquarters Detachment (HHD), 19th Supply & Service Battalion, 593rd General Support Group, Army Support Command Qui Nhon, 1st Logistical Command, U.S. Army, Republic of Vietnam. At 8:30 AM on August 6, 1971, Vichosky was found with no life signs in the 19th Supply and Service Battalion Enlisted Men’s Club at Qui Nhon Army Logistics Support Area at Phu Tai in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. Personnel from the 7th Medical Detachment were summoned, and his body was removed to the dispensary where he was pronounced dead. Vichosky was twenty-three years old. A subsequent autopsy noted blunt trauma to the head. The following day, the remains were received at the U.S. Army Mortuary at Tan Son Nhut Air Base and turned over to Graves Registration personnel. During processing, abrasions to the arms were documented, and blunt trauma to the head was indicated as the cause of death. After processing, Vichosky’s body was transported to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware before being returned to his family in New Jersey. On August 12th, the Army issued an interim casualty report indicating death “as a result of unknown causes.” A final casualty report dated November 26, 1971, did not mention the trauma to the body and cited “cardiac arrhythmia secondary to respiratory failure” as the cause of death. An obituary in The Millville Daily (Millville, NJ) from August 12, 1971, failed to provide any details, and simply cited a Department of Defense pronouncement, “not as a result of hostile action.” [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org; obituary from The Millville Daily (Millville, NJ), August 12, 1971, courtesy of Ray Hahn, Treasurer, Millville Historical Society, Millville, NJ]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Walter Joseph Vichosky Jr, 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
