During the Vietnamese Tet offensive of 1968, my battalion was heavily involved in the fighting in Bien Hoa province. In one contact, we killed a North Vietnamese sergeant. Going through the bits and pieces he was carrying I came upon a photograph. It was obviously of him with his wife and five kids. We buried him in a shallow grave and I sent his gear out on the next resupply helicopter. Given the intensity of operations of that time, I suspect it was discarded. The family will only ever know that he went off to fight for his country and never came home. War is tough for everyone involved.
