On September 13, 1970, Pvt. Wyatt Miller, Jr. was surfing in the South China Sea off the coast about 8 miles south of Da Nang, Quang Nam Province, South Vietnam.

At about 1750 hours, it was reported that Miller had fallen off his surfboard and could not be found.

Immediate search efforts were begun, assisted by two helicopters, but were unsuccessful.

All search efforts were suspended on September 14, without having found a trace of Pvt. Miller.

Miller's is one of the unfortunate accidental deaths that occur wherever people are. The fact that he died an accidental death in the midst of war is tragically ironic.

He is listed among the missing with honor, because his body was never found to be returned to the country he served.
