A Promise to Dan Bullock

I only knew you, Dan, through your friends in the Marine Corps. You were the youngest American killed in the Vietnam War, and actually the youngest since records have been kept. I will not rest until the Vietnam Memorial Foundation changes your birthdate to reflect your accurate birthdate of December 21, 1953. Rest in peace.

Patriot and Soldier

Dan,

I became aware of your story through Franklin McArthur ,Jr, your buddy from boot camp.
Franklin has done a great deal on your behalf and helped you get a proper burial and some of the tremendous credit you deserve
for enlisting at that young age to fight for your country. You are a hero,a patriot and a soldier.
God bless you and all your family members.

Proper burial

One of their most memorable events came on Oct. 28 when they escorted a family to the official burial of a 16-year-old soldier killed in Vietnam.

The members said he was the youngest American soldier killed in the war. But because he had forged his birth records to get into the military at 14, they said, he never received a proper burial.
Pfc. Dan Bullock of Goldsboro was killed on June 7, 1969, just 21 days after arriving in Vietnam. The national organization of Rolling Thunder had called the chapter to ask for an escort from the Virginia state line. Chapters from each state from the family’s home in New York helped to escort the family to North Carolina.

The Cumberland County chapter drove north and escorted the family to the burial site. The Sally Jessy Raphael Show paid for the gravestone that featured a colored etching of Bullock, an American flag and the symbol of the Marines. Two American flags were placed beside it as the color guard and other groups saluted.
Many of the Rolling Thunder wore black sunglasses to mask their tears. They called it a proper burial. They have the photos in their scrap book. “It finally gave his family some closure,” said Darryl Schraeder, president of the Cumberland County chapter.
