David Lawrence Deckard
During the Vietnam War there was no overriding reason to
keep close track of names of the men and women who died
as a result of military service in the war zone. A decade
after the withdrawal of US forces, the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial was approved for construction. The service branches
went back through their records to identify our dead by name.
Inevitably some men who should have been named on the "Wall" were not. Over the years additional names have been inscribed on the Wall - some were men who died after the war as a result of wounds received in the war, and others were men whose names were overlooked in earlier years.
The name David L. Deckard was one of the names not on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.
However, his name was officially added to the Wall on Memorial Day, 2012.
