 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
My father suffered a major heart attack on 21 May 1965, while TDY in China.  He was instructing Chinese Army personnel on the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier.  He was transferred to Fitzsimons General Hospital in Denver, Colorado.  While on leave from the hospital to spend his 51st birthday at home with family, he had another heart attack and was transported to Ft. Carson Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.  I was 10 years old when that happened.
