"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, PFC Rim Michael Dungey, who died in the service of his country on August 26th, 1967 in Quang Ngai Province, Vietnam. The cause of death was listed as Booby Trap. At the time of his death Rim was 21 years of age. He was from San Diego, California. Rim is honored on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Panel 25E, Line 46.
Rim was one of the best. We trained together in La., and departed from Seattle via ship to Viet Nam. He loved So. Calif., and the outdoors. We arrived in Duc Pho - he was assigned to Co. D; I was in A Co. When I learned of his death, I was shocked - I thought more than anyone Rim would make it. He had many friends in our unit, and he cared about his family and girl friend back home.
