Last Known Activity
My Uncle enlisted age 17, was Infantry in the 101st Airborne in WWII, he parachuted into the Borgonne Forest in Germany. He then fought in Korea and retired briefly before 're-upping' for the Viet Nam War, in which he was killed. He was a true patriot and, as all the soldiers, a true hero. BY PAM FORD PAM

MSG Dueman enlisted in May 1946, according to enlistment records at the National Archives.

Merle is buried at Walnut Hill Cemetery in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
I served with MSGT Dueman and he was a great NCO. He was stern but compassionate. As a true leader he put his men before himself. He had retired but answered the call when the Army asked for experienced retirees to return to active duty. It was sad to lose him so soon. I was present when he was mortally wounded in a mortar attack at Dong Tam. I have fond memories of him.
