Ken Seward was our platoon medic and then head medic from September 1968 until April 1969. After that I believe he went to S-5. He was out helping Charlie company 1/12th because their other medics were either wounded or killed.
From a friend,
I served in the 1st of the 12th Infantry in 1969-70 and was there on 27 May 69. I knew him but not well. Another medic who served with him was my best friend at the time. He was hit by a B40 and SSG Hinkle was the sergeant in charge of the aid station. I want to know his name because I have completely blocked it out. If anyone can help please comtact me.
