I went to the cemetery and here are a few pictures of John's marker. My Mom is John's oldest sister. He had seven brothers and sisters. As we have all gotten older, Uncle John will always be 20 years old to us.

John G Scucchi was born in Lake Village, Arkansas, on 20 Jun 1948 to Robie P Scucchi and Denver Temple Scucchi. The Northwest Arkansas Times paper, on November 11, 1968 (Veteran's Day) announced "The Defense Department said Friday that two more Arkansans have died in Vietnam. The Department said Army Pfc. John Scucchi, son of Mr. and Mrs Robie P. Scucchi of Lake Village was killed in action."

"The Department said Army Spec. 4 James A. Frost, husband of Mrs. Jody Frost of Boonesville died not as a result of hostile action." It turns out James was killed during a convoy when another's weapon accidently discharged.

Other records show that John Scucchi was killed by sniper fire at a bunker complex located 8 kilometers (KM) west-southwest of Tam Ky, South Vietnam Airfield on Novermber 5, 1968 while on a combat operation with his unit in the Americal Division.

His father, Robie was born on 30 Sep 1907, married Denver and had 8 children. Robie was also a veteran, serving as a Private during World War II. He passed away on November 16, 1985 in Lake Village.

John's mother, Denver, was born in Warren, Arkansas on 13 Feb 1919 to John Temple and Daisy H Hall. She passed away on July 25, 1978 in Lake Village.

They are all buried in Saint Isidore Catholic Cemetery (AKA St. Mary's), near Lake Village.
