My brother Aaron Charles Smith was killed in Bien Hoi on March 9, 1969 and he wore the black scarf and I have pictures of the sign Dracula. I was wondering if anyone that checks this site may have served with him. He loved music and played guitar as well as banjo and steel guitar. He was and always will be my hero and I want to thank all who served for their service and let you know you were never forgotten. Please feel free to email me if you knew my brother. Some people called him Smitty.

D Company, 1/2 lost 9 men that day.
