Started Vietnam Tour 13 April 1970

 

Glenn was the oldest boy in a family of 3 boys and 2 girls. Glenn was born in Baldwyn, Mississippi to Paul Wesley Duncan and Evelyn Mary (Christie) Duncan. He later lived in Quantico, VA; Atlanta, GA; and Smyrna, GA. Glenn attended Campbell High School and Pace Academy, as well as Georgia Southern and Kennesaw Colleges. Glenn married Jenny Corkill and changed his student status to part-time. Before long he received his draft notice. He excelled in basic training and was recommended for NCO School. While in California attending school before deploying to Vietnam, Glenn was asked to serve as the military escort for his cousin, Phil Duncan, who was killed in an explosion in Vietnam in February of 1970. Glenn and Phil were the closest in age of all of the cousins, being born 5 days apart (Glenn was the oldest). He accompanied the casket from California to Baldwyn, Mississippi for burial. Phil's death was devastating to the family, but this was only the beginning, for Glenn was struck down 3 months later, after having been in Vietnam for only a short time. Glenn was killed before his wife, Jenny, could inform him that she was pregnant with their first and only child. On December 2, 1970, a beautiful baby boy was born, Marc Wesley Duncan. He is grown now, and is always being told by the family, how much he looks like his dad. I wish he could have known his dad as I had known him. Glenn would have been a wonderful father, for he was an exceptional and caring brother. We always called each other by family nicknames, he was Butch and I was Bud. I was only 11 when he went away to the war, and I was so devastated when informed of his death. I still miss him today, and wish he were here to be my big brother.

In 1999, I rode in the annual Rolling Thunder parade on Memorial Day to pay homage to a brave and loving man. I wish Glenn could have been with me in body instead of just spirit, but alas he gave the ultimate sacrifice for his family and country. Farewell Butch, always know you are loved on this earth and are still deeply missed. Look after our sister, Honey (Beverly), who so recently joined you. All my love, your baby brother, Bud (Alan)
