died in Vietnam on Feb 5, 1968. According to the Virtual Wall website, he died of illness or other injuries. I believe he was with 2nd plt. Do any of you guys remember him and how he died. I was med-evaced on the 2nd and to my knowledge, we were still on Hill 37.

I vaguely remember Mark but recently i read some letters I sent home to my Mom and several of them mentioned "Mark says hello."
I'm curious as to what his illness was and where his hometown was.

John, my friend, John Goulart, was a close friend with Mark Langston, and he told me that he was killed on an LP the night the NVA hit us on 'Hill 37'

Hi Alva, And Happy New Year to all my 2/9 brothers. The Virtual Wall website lists Mark Langston's death as non-hostile.
I was recently put into contact with his sister who lives in Portland, Oregon. We have been playing phone tag and have yet to talk. Anytime now I will get the scoop on how Mark died. For some reason she wants to tell me instead of using the e-mail. as soon as we talk, I will give you the info. Darla would also like to communicate with anyone that knew her brother. Her e-mail is mauimama@hotmail.com and her name is Cathy Stewart but goes by Darla.
