* Note: Sgt. David M. Sexton's wife was told there were no remains at the time of his death but learned otherwise 13 years later. A Copy in his file stated that there were body parts found and tagged and sent to Graves Registration. Nobody knows what happened to them. Somehow they were lost.


NOTE FROM The Virtual WaLL:

B Battery, 5/4th Artillery, Lost two men when the Breech Block on an M109 Howitzer malfunctioned while fireing. The Blow-Back resulted in internal powder and/or shell detonation and a fire gutted the gun. The two men were Sgt. David M. Sexton and Cpl Clyde Thomas.

When the burned-out gun had cooled to permit recovery operations, remains of the two men were removed from the vehicle and taken by helicopter to Khe Sanh for further transport to Graves Registration at Quang Tri. Sgt. Sexton's remains were somehow lost. Despite an investigation, they could not be located.
