Michael J. Waterman, Airborne
Michael was a good friend and a great person. He watched out for his friends and fellow soldiers. He was a brave soldier who fought until the end. He was lost on the mountain at Dak To along with 74 other troopers on 06/22/67. They fought until they ran out of ammo. I think about them often. God Bless.
