Sep 17, 1968

“A/D Co’s load onto boats to be inserted.  Bunkers found throughout the day, no contact.  At 1810h, Pfc Lionel Maldonado-Torres (A Co) slipped into the water while reloading back onto the boat.  The record doesn’t show his remains being found later on the 17th, and I haven’t pulled the 18th or 19th, but his official date is the 17th.  It’s possible that another Unit found him and 6/31 wasn’t alerted until the next day.”
