on March 15 with the Bronze Star
Medal for bravery in Vietnam, and
the Purple Heart Medal.
Pfc. Greenwald was killed last

paratroop attack against the en-
emy near Dak To, Vietnam, taking
time out only to assist wounded

fore his 19th birthday.
A volunteer, Pfc. Greenwald en-
tered the s e r vice on his 18th
birthday, Nov. 23, 1966. He volun-
teered again after completing basic
training, choosing to enter the
hazardous paratroop infantry.
Several months before_ h _ is death,
be wrote to two young neighbor
girls in SouthPA:ld, thanking them
for the bubblegum they had sent
him and explaining why he couldn't
come home. He wrote:
"Kids, you say that you want
me to come home soon? Well, I
don't know if you'll understand
in the Republic of Vietnam. On
this day, Company A, 2nd Bat-
talion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry,
was conducting a search and de-
stroy operation near Dak To.
Upon contact, Private First Class
Greenwald ran forward to an ex-
snowballed with a number of or-
ganizations raising funds for the
purchase of the flavoring. Mrs.
Greenwald suffered a heart attack
last October and was forced to
reduce her personal participation
in the campaign.
