More detail on this person: He served in late 1967 and early 1968 but had his tour ended early when his leg was shot up.

In Vietnam with the 189th AHC I was his Section Leader in the 1st A/L Plt and then his Platoon Commander. LT Gray was a Section Leader under me and was a good leader. Unfortunately the leg wound affected LT Gray for the rest of his life. I visited with him and his family near Fort Gordon, Georgia, in late 1968. That was the last I saw him. I later learned that he had died after tour (DAT).
