This Day: June 11 - Vietnam

PFC, Wayne Bibbs, age 17, was one of 233 young men who died on June 11 during the Vietnam War. This is not only tragic for his death coming three days before his 18th birthday but it also occurred on his first day of duty. He arrived in South Vietnam on 6/11/1972, and was part of a helicopter crew that was shot down the same day. His body was never recovered.

Wayne Bibbs was born on 6/14/1954, and was from Blue Island, IL. He was single.
