US Marine Phillip Wilson carrying rocket launcher across stream during fighting near the DMZ during the Vietnam War. He was killed a week after this photo was taken. My favorite teacher in high school had Vets come in and talk about their time in Vietnam. He showed our class photos of soldier, when he showed us this photo he said, "A girl in my class many years ago knew this man as her grandfather. " May he RIP.

Sadly, he was KIA not long after this photo was taken.

I was too when I heard it. I posted it on IG, and someone there told me he was killed. So very sad.
