Last Known Activity
Sergeant Carl Peters, Jr. died at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Washington, D.C.

He had been wounded in Vietnam on Thanksgiving Day (1968)  which resulted in the removal of his left leg below the knee. He was transferred to Washington several weeks later for additional treatment.

He contacted malaria and melioidosis, and was listed in critical condition several weeks before his death.

He was at collage when he joined the U.S. Army in late 1967. He underwent basic training at Fort Knox, Kentucky.  His tour in Vietnam began on 11 February 1968, and he had 83 days service in Vietnam remaining when he was wounded.
