He was 21 years old and was not married. It was reported that Mausby died from drowning. His body was recovered. Mausby was born on June 16th, 1944 in Gastonia, North Carolina. SP4 Hyleman is on panel 02E, line 101 of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. He served our country for 2 years.

He left to go to war, never to return. He is still missed by his ten brothers and sisters. His mother and father are with him now, also his brother William [Bill] Hyleman who served 24 years in the Navy, passed away January 04,2000. Now there are four looking down on us. We love you and miss you very much. Sarah Joanne Hyleman Hardee

He was an outstanding, courageous trooper in B Company, 1st Battalion, 7th US Cavalry Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Division. This Fallen Hero Trooper paid the ultimate sacrifice serving our country in the Vietnam War. He fought for our country faithfully in the firm belief that doing so others may enjoy the liberty and freedoms that we treasure. Relatives, Friends & Countryman be proud that this OUTSTANDING TROOPER was an infantry soldier in the "Cav". The same 7th US Cavalry Regiment of General Custer fame. More movies and books have made and written about 7th US Cavalry Regiment than any other Military unit from the Indian War to Vietnam, with more to come.

According to the History Channel, the 7th US Cavalry is one of the most decorated units in Military History. Most recent movie is "We Were Soldiers", starring Mel Gibson, an outstanding movie as to what some of the fighting was like in Vietnam War. The 1st Air Cavalry Division had the highest number of combat losses of all Division that fought in the Vietnam War at 5,408, the 7th US Cavalry Regiment had 1,418, Wounded-In-Action estimated at over 20,000. To the chagrin of the Marines we were the Division and the 7th US Cavalry was the Regiment that rescued the Marines out of Khe Sanh, relieving the 3,500 U.S. Marines besieged by nearly 20,000 NVA enemy soldiers. Proudly we fought side-by-side with the Marines at Hue City, A-Shau Valley near the Laotian boarder and many other battles. On 1 May 1970, the Cav. was "First into Cambodia" air assaulting into their Communist sanctuary.

The 7th US Cavalry Regiment was the very last infantry combat unit to leave Vietnam in June 1972. The Cav was in Vietnam from August 1965 to June 1972, or 83 months of intense combat.
