Vietnam Wall Electronic Rubbing - Neil MacIver

He was 19-years-old when he was killed-in-action in the Republic of Vietnam on May 29, 1963. He had already been a veteran of 2 years of combat. 

He had attended a military school as a youth and his father was an army veteran. 

Weeks before his death, he had been painfully wounded in a bamboo trap set by the Viet Cong. However, he begged to be permitted to stay with his unit and permission was granted. One week later his unit was caught in an ambush and he was killed. Because of his outstanding and hazardous work as a radio operator he received posthumous award of the Bronze Star with combat star. 

He is buried in Section 41 of Arlington National Cemetery.
