In the local area papers for August 1, 1967 it read something like: George S. Campbell, 19, was killed Wednesday in Vietnam. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Campbell, 43375 Ryer Court in Utica. The family was notified Thursday by military personnel. Pfc. Campbell was with the 25th Infantry Division, Vietnam, where he has been since October 1966.

Born May 30, 1948 at Newburgh, New York, Pfc. Campbell moved to the Utica area in 1963 and attended Utica High School. He enlisted in the service April 1966. He was survived by his parents, a sister, and two grandmothers.


George began his tour in Vietnam on October 23, 1967. Army records say he was killed by metal fragment wounds but the operations log of the 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment state it was sniper bullets that killed SP4 Campbell and severely wounded SP4 Charles Robert Vest, Lynchburg, Ohio, who was evacuated in a coma and he stayed in the coma until he died on October 7, 1974 from his wounds.

Surviving him are his parents Adele and Walter; a sister Janis; his maternal grandmother Mrs. Anna Sanders, Marlboro, NY; and his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Marie Campbell, Detroit. Pfc Campbell is buried in Cadillac Memorial Gardens East, Clinton Township, Michigan.
