174th Died After Tour

Below is probably the most incomplete list I have on this website. Hopefully it is not the most inaccurate. We are attempting to identify all those 174th veterans who have passed away since their tour in the 174th. I realize this list will never be complete. When we know the date of death, that is listed below the name. If not an exact date, I list what we do know. For some, we have no information other than that the person has passed away.

The below list is alphabetical. Please let me know if you see any errors, or know of dates I do not have listed, or know of someone who is not on this list who should be. I will add names as I learn them.

I have also listed the cause of death when it is known. If you know a cause of death for someone that is listed but not shown, please let me know and I will add that information.

Thanks to Mel Lutgring and Bernie Cobb (RIP) for all of their hard work in researching and developing this list, and to Mel and the current 174th Association officers for helping keep it up to date. ~Jim McD>


Below is the 174th AHC "Flag of Honor," conceived, constructed, and updated by Mel Lutgring to honor those 174th vets killed in Vietnam and those who have died after their tour. Those names in black were killed in Vietnam. Those names in white have died after their tour. The white list is growing much too quickly.
