I am writing in memory of my father, Ervind C Strandberg. He was killed in action on January 3, 1967, in a fire fight in Binh Duong Province. I had him for such a short time. Please if there is anyone out there who served with him, I would love to hear from you. Not a day goes by that he is not in my thoughts...
From his daughter,
A Note from The Virtual WallCharlie Company, 2/28th Infantry, lost three men to a mine on 02 January 1967. SP4 Garland G. Fugate of Dayton, Ohio, tripped the device and was killed by the blast. SSG Edward E. Greene of Lenoir, North Carolina, and PFC Elmer F. Spina of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, were wounded in the explosion; both died the same day from injuries received.
On the following day, 03 January, the mine claimed a fourth victim: SP4 Ervind C. Strandberg of Strathcona, Minnesota, died from injuries received.
