I am the nephew of Cpl. Jimmy D. Curry. Thank you for remembering him and his fellow US Marines who died that day (9/21/1967). It was supposed to be his last day in-country and he went out to fight and die with his friends... I have been forever mindful of of the sacrifices that each of you endured then (and now). Thank you ALL!!!!! Gregory Brewer
