A friend and brother who died at Polei Duc.

The men who died that day in the Battle at Polei Duc will be remembered by those who didn't until we eventually rejoin them.


Visit the
4th Infantry Division



John Nelson, who served with Alpha 1/8 Infantry at Polei Duc, sponsored memorials to the men he served with that day. Early in 2002, John Nelson rejoined his comrades in arms.

The Virtual Wall takes pride in completing John's work by adding two men inadvertently left off the original memorial - medics Calvin Schwartz and Robert Jenkins.

Visit John Dennison's
Medics on the Wall
memorial which honors the
Army Medics and Navy Corpsmen who died in Vietnam.
