A Note from The Virtual WallFirst Lieutenant Charles Aronhalt was one of 48 Americans who died as a result of the fighting around Plei Doc on 18-22 May 1967.
Perhaps the most longstanding tradition of Johns Hopkins University lacrosse is the annual tribute to the team's war dead, in which two flags with gold stars are attached to the goals before the first home game. There they are displayed at every home game throughout the season.
The tradition got its start at the opening game of the 1919 season, when team captain Herb Baxley hung a flag having three gold stars, each one representing a former Hopkins lacrosse player who had died in World War I. A second flag with seven stars was added after World War II, to pay tribute to the seven men who died in that war.
After the Vietnam conflict, the flag bore an eighth star to honor Charles E. Aronhalt.
