Re: Query: Land Mine Casualties in the Vietnam War

The original query was about casualties in the Vietnam War, and Peter Dewey would not qualify. He could reasonably be called the first American casualty of the First Indochina War, but not of the Vietnam War (Second Indochina War).

I was careless in my phrasing, and said Buis and Ovnand were the first American casualties "in Vietnam." Walter McIntosh is clearly correct about this; Dewey was an earlier casualty in Vietnam.
