The database page for Albert Carl Bachman, Jr
Albert was my boyhood best friend and was killed one week before I graduated from college. I recieved a card from him after I knew he was gone.
Even after a 27 year military career, he has never left me.
A Note from The Virtual WallThe 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, lost five men on 08 June 1970:
Pfc Blakely's death resulted from an accident of war. As his 1st Platoon squad moved toward its night ambush site it was detected by a 3rd Platoon squad which had already established an ambush - and which opened fire on Blakely's squad. Blakely was killed and one other 1st Platoon Marine was wounded in the incident.
