2ND BATTALION 94TH ARTILLERY

 

      DIED OR MISSING 

                                                           

                                                           

 

Some of the names of the 94th members are missing and only the accounts of their injury or death are indicated as reported by other 2/94th personnel.   Hopefully one day all the names and accounts will be identified.

 

Anyone remembering any of the names or accounts that are not recorded here please report it.

 

Thirty-Six years have gone by before trying to record these individuals and their sacrifices as part of the History of the 2/94th.  All help is greatly appreciated.

DIED

 

Every night they lie awake

And dream of momma’s chocolate cake

And wonder if there’ll be a tomorrow

And will they ever see

Their home and their family

Or will they ever be back home

 

Boys who never learned to pray

Look to the heavens every day

And stumble through a simple little prayer

And ask the Lord above

To send them home to the ones they love

Oh God I hope they make it home

 

And every day some young man dies

And in the night some young girl cries

He’ll never hear his baby’s laughter

He’ll never never see

His home and his family

 

Or what he’s done for you and me

 

 Some Gave All Their Tomorrows

Awarded the Bronze Star with V

 

GO 4832 - Corporal Moseley distinguished himself by valorous actions on 10 September 1968 as a member of the communications section of an artillery battery during a heavy shelling of Camp J.J. Carroll.  He constantly disregarded his personal safety by exposing himself to the incoming fire to restore communication lines cut by the devastating enemy barrage.  This involved traveling of two hundred meters of open terrain, laying new lines and maintaining them as the enemy rounds continued to impact around him.  He continued his courageous acts until he was mortally wounded.  Corporal Moseley’s personal bravery and devotions to duty, at the high cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Day is done

    Gone the sun

    From the lakes

    From the hills

    From the sky

    All is well,

    Safely rest.

    God is nigh.

 

    Fading light

    Dims the sight

    And a star

    Gems the sky,

    Gleaning bright

    From afar,

    Drawing nigh,

    Falls the night.

 

    Thanks and praise,

    For our days,

    Neath the sun,

    Neath the stars,

    Neath the sky,

    As we go,

    This we know,

    God is nigh.

 

The Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. was built to honor the unfortunate
children of this country who never returned from the travesties of
Vietnam. For the same reasons the Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.
exists, the link below was built.

 

Let us not forget those who fought so hard and valiantly gave their lives

for our country.

 Let us honor their memories and share in their family's loss.
