Dearest Brother,

Your family is very proud of you. We are so happy to finally know the answers to what happened to you and your platoon on March 10, 1970.

Thank you for your sacrifice.

Not a day goes by when you are not missed. You have touched so many lives in your young life, especially mine. You are my hero.

Take care of Jennifer for us. Thinking of you always.

Your baby sister,

13 Feb 2007

The anniversary of your death is coming up and I think of you every day. I keep your photo next to my PC to remind me you are always with me in spirit. I know you are at peace and we will meet in Heaven, dear brother. I heard that your fiancee read the article I wrote in your hometown paper. You touched a lot of lives and you are remembered. Love you lots, your sister.

From his sister,
Lori J Severson

A Note from The Virtual Wall

On 10 March 1970 the 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry lost eight men during an attack on their night position about 17 kilometers west-southwest of Hue:
  • A Company:
    • SGT Billy J. Greavu, Canton, OH
    • SGT Lawrence H. Santinac, New Orleans, LA
    • SP4 Leonard Keller, Bayonne, NJ
    • SP4 Thomas E. Severson, New Richmond, WI, medic HQ Co w/ Alpha 1/506
    • PFC Alex V. Vardy, Cleveland, OH

  • C Company:
    • SP4 Byron M. Richard, New Orleans, LA
    • SP4 Paul A. Richards, San Antonio, TX

  • HQ Company:
    • PFC William R. Alamed, Southwick, MA
SP4 Severson, a medic, was formally assigned to HQ Company but was in the field with Alpha 1/506. PFC Alamed, a mortarman, very probably was with one of the rifle companies but The Virtual Wall doesn't know which one.
