Last Known Activity

Udo  Schulz
Platoon leader
PFC Vick was my radio operator for several months. In a fight it is not the safest of jobs. His great kid and I liked him a lot. When he returned to his squad, I was glad. I wanted to share the danger and he had had more than his share. Several nights later on his way to establishing an Observation Post for our platoon, he triggered a booby trap. We got him to a medivac chopper but sadly he died later.
