Michael ‘Mike’ Allen Welch, is the earliest known casualty from Tennyson High School, he died in combat on April 8th, 1967. He was a member of the 1st Air Cavalry Division, 7th Air Cavalry, 1st Battalion.

I didn’t know of Michaels service until Sunday, November 09, 2014. All I can provide is Mikes name and photo (courtesy of Tennyson High School Alumnie ) include him in todays blog page and a link to Tennyson High School remembrance page.

About pleiku1970

My service at Pleiku, 1970 is significient because of the Cambodian Incursion. Close proximity to exit routes from the Ho Chi Minh Trail and the "Tri-Border area of Laos,Cambodia and Vietnam. This Air Force assignment was different than most, because of the isolation.
