Final Mission of PFC Louis L. Zittergruen

On July 17, 1970, an M113 armored personnel carrier from E Troop, 1st Cavalry, 11th Infantry Battalion was on a search and clear mission about 7½ miles northwest of Quang Ngai Airfield when it detonated a concealed 250 lb. bomb. The blast killed six soldiers and wounded nine. The lost crewmen included vehicle commander PFC Peter P. Auletti, driver PFC Stephen W. Barnes, gunners PFC Clifford E. Parsons Jr. and PFC Paul L. Salerno, and passengers PFC Michael E. Baum and PFC Louis L. Zittergruen. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

I would have loved to see what you could have accomplished in life.

Louie, growing up with you, the smile on your face and your kindness will never be forgotten. I would have loved to see what you would have accomplished in life, whether it was a lawyer, doctor, engineer, or what ever you became. Your outgoing personality would have made you a big success and you would have been a great father. Even though you had to leave us too soon, you are always in our thoughts. I am so glad I got the opportunity to watch you as you went through grade school, junior high, and high school and your infectious laugh and smile will never be forgotten. Thank you for being a part of my life when growing up.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Louis Lloyd Zittergruen, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
