"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother"
35th Infantry Regiment
"Not For Fame or Reward
Not For Place or For Rank
But In Simple Obedience To
Duty as They Understood It"
The 35th Infantry Regiment Association salutes our fallen brother, CPL Delbert Ray Brockmeyer, who died in the service of his country on June 3rd, 1968 in Kontum Province, Vietnam. The cause of death was listed as Grenade. At the time of his death Delbert was 20 years of age. He was from Ava, Illinois. Delbert is honored on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Panel 61W, Line 23.
Corporal Brockmeyer was a member of my platoon on the evening of 3 Jun 68. I was positioned about 10 meters to his left at the time of his death. I was a lieutenant with Co. C, 1/35th. Corporal Brockmeyer was, like every man I knew in that unit, a brave soldier.
