|Joe Bonifas (with the M-60) and Doug Whiting.
Joe and Doug had been together since boot camp. During their
advanced training Doug took Joe home with him where Joe promised his
family that he would get him back home safely. When Doug was killed
took it hard and stil does.

was in this general area where a booby trap would kill Ernine Martinez,
Jack Lackey, Tom Root, and Doug Whiting on July 10, 1969.
Doug Whiting is in the middle and probably Ed Espinoza with the
walking stick. Jerry Sylvia may be the Marine on the left. He was killed
in September 1969.
