ON THE WALL Panel 08E Line 123

In June 1966 the 1st Bn, 35th Infantry was working in the vicinity of the Duc Co airfield, at the northern end of the Ia Drang Valley and very close to the RVN/Cambodian border. On 24 June the battalion lost 15 men to an ambush about 15 kilometers to the south of Duc Co, and twenty more were killed when Bravo 1/35 engaged an NVA force while working along Route 569 about 6 km south of Duc Co. Curtis was one of the men lost.
