Howdy John;

I don't know where the 101st Airborne Division comes from, but it looks like 1LT Ericson had prior Army service before entering West Point (see the remembrances to him posted at http://www.vvmf.org//index.cfm?SectionID=110&Wall_Id_No=15222.0 ). After graduation, he served with a unit of the 82nd Airborne Div. back in the States for six months. He arrived in Vietnam on 5/14/69 and was assigned to "A" Company, 1st Battalion, 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade. He was KIA on 7/15/69 in Binh Dinh Province due to "Hostile, Ground Casualty, Multiple Fragmentation Wounds".

Your best bet is to get in touch with the guys of the 173rd at http://home.att.net/~gkozdron/ . They have an e-mail message board and your uncle's name appears on their KIA list.
