My Uncle David

My name is David Bruggeman I am David Broadhead’s nephew and namesake. I have posted a couple pictures of my uncle from Vietnam, I think. I never knew Uncle David as he was KIA before I was born. He died February 7, 1966 at the battle of My Cahn II which was part of operation Van Buren. My Uncles Tiger Force platoon was brought in to assist some pinned down units at the town of My Canh II. When his Tiger Force unit arrived along with a second platoon they moved north and south to flank the enemy. As my Uncles platoon was moving into position they were suddenly exposed as the tall grass they were concealed in gave way and several soldiers were shot including my uncle.
He was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnamese Military Merit Medal, Gallantry Cross, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, CIB, and Parachutist Badge.
I have personally been to the Vietnam Wall in D.C. and mad a rubbing of his name. Although I never met my Uncle through pictures and stories from his mother and sisters I do feel I know him. It is a great loss I never got to meet him in person. We will always be thinking of you.
