You guys had a lot of friends. I was 11 when you died. I was walking home to Barteau Avenue from Little League on Corey, thinking about you when it really hit me and I was tremendously saddened. From that point, it was marked in my mind because it was my first encounter with death in this life. Of all people, it had to be you!! You see, of all of the friends, to me, you were the NICEST; my favorite! - To this day - I still remember, think of and miss you.

I'm writing this one day before your birthday, remembering all the good times we shared at Seton Hall, at Hickey Field in RVC, the 110 Lounge and all the other places on Long Island we visited in our never ending pursuit of girls, good times and laughs. I want you to know that a good friend of mine who is teaching a class about Vietnam asked me for some thoughts about my remembrance of the ugliness of the Vietnam era. What I produced was mainly about you. This will make no sense, I'm sure, but 40 years on I still have your old ice skates hanging on my garage wall.

Remember what you used to call me?

A Note from The Virtual Wall

SP4 Dugan was assigned to A Battery, 2/32 Arty, but there is information which indicates he may have been assigned to an Artillery Forward Observer team with A Company, 1st Bn, 28th Infantry.

The Virtual Wall cannot determine the date or circumstances of his injuries. If he was with A/1/28, he may have been wounded in an engagment on 12 Sep 1968 when Alpha 1/28 lost 12 men. However, a remembrance on another site, placed by a friend who wasn't there, says that he "had been in Vietnam for about 6 months when his truck hit a landmine. He was evacuated to Japan where he died suddenly as a result of his wounds."

Kevin Dugan is buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Coram, Long Island, with his parents.
