A Note from The Virtual Wall

Two men from C Company, 2/14th Infantry, were killed outright by a booby trap while on operations in Tay Ninh Province on 28 April 1967:

  • SSG Teodoro Davila, Edinburg, TX and

  • PFC Julian Marin, Corcoran, CA.

The Virtual Wall believes, but cannot prove, that PFC Borick was injured in the same explosion and died later in the day.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!
