Casualties

9th Engineer Battalion

1st Marine Division, FMF


On this page, We list the names of 9th Engineer Battalion Marines and Sailors who gave their lives in defense of the Republic of South Viet Nam. You may remember them as we do, as brothers who must not be forgotten. They gave their lives so that we could live, and return to our homes and family. They were robbed of their youth, family and loved ones. We will not forget.

The names, dates and information describing individual circumstances have been obtained from The Viet Nam Casualties Database of known military casualties, edited and updated by Thomas W. Halloway from the 1993 version of the Combat Area Casualty Current File (Southeast Asia), National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).


As you read, please keep in mind that errors are possible, and that we may have missed some brother you knew, or we have misspelled a name, provided an incorrect date or that we have inaccurately depected events. Please take the time to e-mail the Webmaster at r_handley@lycos.com, or at fiveton@mailcity.com.


To the families and loved ones of those listed here, although time makes it easier, we must everyday remember these men for what they gave to our Country, the Corps and to us. Their memory is not cast aside. We will always remember them.
