NOTE: Sgt. Dennis Ray Forney arrived in country in December '68 and became a squad leader in the second platoon of Co A 3/7th, 199th Light Infantry Brigade. Although I knew him only for a short time, he was a stand-up guy. He came in as an (instant) NCO but respected the lower-ranking guys in the unit with more time in the bush. He was open to suggestion and willing to learn.

Sadly, we lost him as a result of a small arms wound on January 27, 1969. We were inserted into a hot LZ in the Parrot's Beak area North of Tan An. It was a bad head wound. The firefight and mop up operation lasted over three days, although he was dusted off that afternoon. He finally died of this wound on June 20. We, of course, hoped against hope that he might have made it until we heard the bad news. He was a brave man and we missed him. I'm sure he would have become an excellent leader.

This info was submitted byJerry Lyons.

Note: SSGT Larry Don Welch is listed as MIA. He was declared dead by the DOD on February 11, 1974 but still listed as missing in action.
