Re: Marine Viet Nam Heroes
Since we seem to be celebrating Viet Nam War heroes, I am going to celebrate this African-American Marine.
PFC Dan Bullock, USMC, from Lee Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. Born 21 Dec 1953. KIA 7 June 1969. He had wanted to become a pilot, a police officer, or a U.S. Marine. So, he lied about his age to enlist in the U.S. Marines at age 14. He was KIA during a night attack on his firebase after being in-country only 3 weeks. He was 15 years old and the youngest US serviceman killed in action since the Civil War.
Forgotten except by those of us who knew him, and those of us who remember.
