Twelve soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division died in several engagements along Route 304, near Ap Bu Nho, in Phuoc Long Province, on 09 -10 Jan 1969:

After PFC Terry's death, his family received a letter from a member of his unit containing the sentences "They killed our little medic, Juan. They shot him in the head. They also killed Snuffy."

"Our little medic, Juan" was Specialist 4 Juan Bauza-Perez; "Snuffy" probably was PFC Wilbur J. Siegrist.


SP4 William Miller Riddle, a 1960 graduate of Vermont, Ipava, and Table Grove [VIT] High School, began his tour in Vietnam on November 23, 1968 and was killed 46 days later.

He is buried alongside his parents, Evelyn Miller Riddle (July 21, 1908 - September 1, 1978) and Paul Arthur Riddle (May 2, 1912 - January 1, 1972) in Ipava Cemetery, Ipava, Fulton County, Illinois.
