SP4 Frederick James Carraturo
REPOST: SP4 Carraturo was a member of Alpha Company 2-14th Infantry, 25th ID. He entered Army service by way of New Rochelle, NY and met his fate on May 22nd, 1967 in the Binh Duong province of South Vietnam.
On that day, at 1110 hours, Alpha Co. reported that they had 4 W.I.A and 1 K.I.A. SP4 Carraturo, unfortunately, was the Soldier killed in action. He succumbed to multiple fragmentation wounds.
He was just shy of his 21st Birthday. He was posthumously awarded a Bronze Star on the 11th of September, 1967. His Brothers in Arms will never forget him and his ultimate sacrifice on the fields of battle. And neither should anyone else.
He earned his place at The Right of the Line.
I've been doing these small memorials for some time now both on Facebook and on my previous site. The purpose is to not only remember our fallen brothers from the 14th Infantry Regiment, but to show the families that we will always care and never forget.
