The database page for Willie Joe Bramlet
SGT Willie J. Bramlet was a career soldier with eight years of military service. He was one of the original battalion members, as his Vietnam service started on October 10, 1965. He was a family man with a wife and two children.
Five months into his tour SGT Bramlet was riding in a convoy, and was mortally wounded when the vehicle he was driving came under heavy automatic weapons fire during a Viet Cong ambush. Dying immediately, SGT Bramlet became the second fatality the battalion endured since arriving in Vietnam.
B Battery was stationed at Di An when this attack occurred. A Memorial Service was held for SGT Bramlet at Di An. LTC G. E. Robinson, battalion commander, spoke about SGT Bramlet's career. B Battery's officers and men participated in a prayer service led by the battalion chaplain. A drum roll and Taps concluded the ceremony.
SGT Bramlet is remembered by the men of B Battery and of the Red Dragon Clan as a simple man doing his part in a land of much deadly activity.
