Re: Query: Land Mine Casualties in the Vietnam War

I have continued to look into this question, and that of land mines more generally (more below), since my last posting on it. Mr. McIntosh may very well be "right" as to the first American casualty after WW II *in Vietnam.* But the officially recognized DOD claim for the first American casualty in the *Vietnam War,* I have since discovered by consulting a Vietnam veteran friend who seems to know everything about the Memorial Wall, is USAF T-Sgt. Richard B. Fitzgibbon, Jr., of Weymouth, Mass., on June 8, 1956.
