Vietnam 1st Battalion
A Company 1967 – 1968
Alfred Juarez came to ABU 1st. Plt. in June ’67 we became close friends as He and I were on the gun humping that can of ammo. You know how it is when you are a F.N.G. Sometime around April ’68 Alfred was shot in the back and sent home. I didn’t hear from him after he went home. About four years ago I found out what happened to him. His wife told me he came home in a wheel chair but never gave up the fight till the end. Alfred died in Nov. 1981 due to complications from his injuries received in Viet Nam. Alfred was a great friend and a true eagle. He will live in my heart and mind forever.
