  The story of David is probably more common than  most realize  
  regarding casualties of the Vietnam War. He was 'In Country'  
  just 25 days when he was killed by either an  
  artillery round, a rocket or a mortar.  
 

 

 
 

American Legion Post 255 voting unanimously on 9 July 2011, approved

 
 

the name change of our Post to Honor this Patriot. The Vietnam War

 
 

was populated with un-sung heroes like Sgt. Ledgerwood

 
 

All gave Some, Some gave all.
