Perhaps someone that sees this will provide information on his family.

It's my understanding that this happened at Khe Sanh. I was with an Army Recon unit next to the Marines. I watched as they flew the body bags in and layed them on the ramp awaiting pickup.

Maybe Vincent was one of them.



One Month and three Days in the Nam.
 Vincent was just a young man with the same dreams we all shared at that stage in life. His life was snuffed out by an enemy our government selected to go to war against.
It makes no matter that he was a
21 year old Single, Negro, Male, as munitions do not discriminate.
For clarification to questions asked of me, he is listed because his name is Westberry. His family probably came from the South Eastern US. His ancestors did get our name from our people, slave or not. I would like to find out more on this young mans family.
