 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Stewart was wounded 30 March 1969 from a RPG that hit a M113 he was driving back to the rear for maintenance. He didn't want to wait for a chopper. SGT Oberle died three months later. We were all sad when we got the news. I last saw him which he took the blast in the face from the trim vane exploding. We were told he was blinded but hoped he would make it. He was my first Squad Leader and a damn good one.
