  • Private first class Gene Gilbert, son of Mrs. Warren Gilbert was drowned in Vietnam in 1970 while attempting to secure plane dropped supplies which had fallen in the river. Caught in the under tow he was reported missing in action until the body was later found.
  • Spec 4, Richard John Mosely, was killed January 27, 1967 in Vietnam. He was a medic and was shot running through bushes to help two wounded soldiers.

We are attempting to make a list of all Berne area men and women who served in the armed forces during the Vietnam War.

If you know someone who served, please add their name to the list. If you know more about any of them, if would be a fitting tribute to them if you would also create a biography of them. Until then, the only thing we can share with viewers of this page is their name.


We would like to start a biography for each of these people with the basic data about their military service and anything else you care to add under one or more of the following categories as appropriate:

  • Photo
  • Birth (date, place, parents)
  • Education
  • Military Service
  • Marriage and Children
  • Occupation
  • Death (date and burial)
  • Other Media (newspaper articles, service papers, obituary, etc.)
  • Gallery (photos)


Please add a name below in alphabetical order. To do so, first register then sign in. You will see an Edit tab to the right. Click on it and enter a name in the sample format shown below. Go the bottom of this page and click Show Preview. The name should then appear in red. If it looks OK, go to the bottom of the page again and click on Save Page. If you click on the name you can then add a biography. You need not write a biography to add a name to the list.
