Post Outsidelanders Lost Life in Vietnam

09/21/17 - posted by Holt Macon

I have watched some sections of the 18 hour series on Vietnam shown on PBS.
The details appear to be pretty good which is exactly what we need now in history since so much of the history books I've read have turned out to be inaccurate, incomplete, biased, wrong or out right lies.

What I'm especially interested in is those people, usually high school graduates of the Outside Lands who were drafted (or perhaps volunteered) to fight in Vietnam and lost their lives.

Whether you were for the war or against it or didn't care at all, those people of the Outside Lands, especially those high school graduates who were immediately drafted at age 18 and then lost their lives should be given some kind of notice since the world has forgotten them. Their names should be put on a list if not put on a plaque.

So if anyone has such a list or if anyone knows of anyone who did lose their life right out of high school maybe you can post it here so these people will not be forgotten.
