I never met this brave man, but I visit his gravesite often to pay my respects.
He was a medic for the 11th Light Infantry, and gave his life for us on February 25, 1969.
I first saw his name last year when I visited Portland's memorial to Vietnam veterans. Francis was born in Eugene, Oregon, and was only 20 when he died. I thank God daily that I am free because of all the men living or gone who gave their all.
Someday I will travel to Washington D.C. and leave flowers at the Wall for all those brave souls.
A Note from The Virtual WallThe 1st Squadron, 1st Cavalry, lost two men on 25 Feb 1969, both to gunshot wounds:
