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 Department of Defense has approved having his name etched on the Wall during May 2014, along with 13 other names. His name will be placed somewhere near the names of those who died the same day.

Records indicate MSG Mauldin had re-enlisted at Fort Gordon Georgia, thus his Home of Record was listed as Doraville, Georgia. At the time of his death at Walter Reed General Hospital, Washington, D.C., his wife Evelyn, who was residing in Tucker Georgia at the time, was at his bedside when he passed away. He was also survived by his father, Carl W Mauldin from College Park, Georgia.

At the present time, it is unknown where MSG Mauldin was laid to rest.
