Although I never met you I heard a lot about you from my dad, Jesus Vasquez. I even named my son after you. My dad talked very highly of you. I lost my father on March 31, 2002, and now you two can be united again.
A Note from The Virtual WallPfc Jose Salazar was one of several men wounded by booby traps while on patrol near Ky Lam hamlet, about 5 kilometers east of the Liberty Bridge across the Thu Bon River. As far as is known, he is the only one to have died from his injuries.
