When someone was evacuated from the field to a hospital because of a wound, and if the wound kept them in the hospital more that 90 days, they became assigned to that particular hospital unit or another associated unit. Therefore, several WIA's who died in the care of a hospital, and were being accounted for by another unit besides the 173d, did not receive accounting by the 173d. Also, their status may have been MIA, meaning, they wouldn't be listed as KIA until some point and time in the future. We at 173d.com regret this and ask visitors, who may have information on someone who is not listed, to make us aware of the discrepancy. To report any errors please contact the 173d.com WEBMASTER
At 173d.com we want an educational multimedia experience and will publish your story or article about your military experience/photos or someone you knew and meets certain criteria. The story or article can be about combat, friend, some one you knew, a remembered event, the worst day and the best day, first day home, etc in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
This is your place to be heard and never forgotten.
