From a friend,
A Note from The Virtual Wall
On 07 Jan 1969 a platoon from C Company, 3/22nd Infantry, was engaged northeast of Tay Ninh City, about 8 miles from the Cambodian border. Five men died in the firefight and a sixth died three days afterwards from wounds received:
A seventh soldier was missing in action. Sergeant Larry D. Welsh, of Kansas City, Kansas, who had been lightly wounded during the fight, disappeared while seeking aid for another wounded soldier. Although one wounded soldier and the body of another were recovered when US forces returned to the area the following day Sergeant Welsh was not found. He was carried as Missing in Action until 11 Feb 1974, when the Secretary of the Army approved a Presumptive Finding of Death.
