I was Corporal, Berry's, Platoon Leader, in Vietnam. He was, my platoon medic. I can assure, his family and friends, that Alan did not suffer, when we lost him. He always had a kind word, for everyone and was forever fretting, over the men, in the platoon. He died, while doing his job. He was ordering more medical supplies, for treating the men in our platoon. Alan was respected and well admired, by myself and our platoon. He will forever be a hero, in my heart. God Bless Alan and his family and friends.

I think I was there, when they died
I think, through this site, that I have finally identified the two men, who lost their lives, no more than 15, feet, from me, on that horrible February morning. I have searched, a lot of panels and I'am quite sure, their names were Alan Wayne Berry and James Kent Kirkby. They died instantly, with their heads, only inches apart. There was no pain, or suffering. I did'nt know them personally, but they will always be in my heart, when I think, about the Vietnam experience. My belated condolences, to their families and loved ones. God bless you and never forget, that they were heroes.
