Gerald Erwin Cunningham
Lance Corporal, United States Marine Corps
Corporal Gerald Erwin Cunningham was part of my husbands unit in Vietnam.
While responding to a broken down vehicle on 5 February 1966 in DaNang
Vietnam he encountered a land mine which caused his wrecker to flip over
and burn. With him was Corporal Grover Webb who was also seriously
burned. Cunningham was transfered to Great Lakes Naval Hospital where
he died of his wounds on 24 August 1966. He is buried in section 51 plot
1540. Thank you, Elaine Brock,
