Vietnam War Heroes

People from Scott County who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

Source information:  The list of names in the following table were derived from the Veterans Memorial Wall in Huntsville and newspaper death notices.  The birth and death dates come from the National Archives Lists of Casualties from the Vietnam Conflict (1957-1995), Cemeteries of Scott County, Tennessee, and various obituaries.

I need your help to make this table complete.  Please email me with information that completes or corrects the table.  I would be particularly grateful for copies of obituaries, pictures of headstones, and pictures of the soldier.  I think others would be interested in knowing the specific military units in which these soldiers served and where in Vietnam they died.
