Letters From War Wednesday: Vietnam War – Danny Weber.

Danny Weber - 13th Combat Aviation Battalion

Danny Weber served in the Vietnam War with the 13th Combat Aviation Battalion. In this Letters From War Wednesday, we feature a short note from Weber to his father, Jack, back home. In October 1967, Weber turned 20 and set foot in Vietnam.

“I thought I would write and let you know we made it here just fine. …I sure had a nice time while I was home on those 30 days of leave.  I’m sorry that I couldn’t get a hold of you Thursday.  I would have given anybody fifty dollars just to hear your voice before I left.”

Sadly, Danny Weber was killed at Vi Thanh, Vietnam on January 28, 1968, when his vehicle hit an enemy land mine. Read Danny Weber’s full story in EVERYTOWN, USA.
