A Note from The Virtual Wall
The 3/1 Marines' Command Chronology indicates that a patrol from Kilo Company was engaged on 26 April with one Marine wounded - and that the Marine died of his wounds before the Chronology was signed out on 01 May 1966. While the Marine's name is not given, the circumstances make it virtually certain Pfc Valliere is the Marine wounded on 26 April 1966.
With all respect
