More detail on this person: I spoke to Pricella Cunningham, wife of Van B. Cunningham, Charliehorse 5 of the D troop, 3/5 Cav in 71/72. Van died 20 September 2001 of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was a senior DA civilian in the DA office of personnel and manpower. He was in the hospital on Sept. 11th 2001 and was not at the Pentagon. The nose of the aircraft hit 20 feet from his desk. His office and staff were wiped out. He missed that to die 9 days later. Amazing! It needs to be added to DAT data.
