Private First Class Dan Bullock joined the Marines, deployed to Vietnam, and was killed in action less than one month after arriving in country. Astonishingly, he was only 15 years old...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bullock wanted to join so bad that he altered his birth certificate in order to enlist. Given his larger height and weight, his age wasn't questioned. He arrived in Vietnam with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines in May 1969. On The night of June 6-7, shortly after midnight, the NVA launched an assault on An Hoa Combat base where Bullock’s company was stationed. Bullock made several trips bringing ammo to the front lines for his fellow Marines. On one of these journeys, he was struck by a burst of small arms fire and killed. After Bullock’s death, his true age was discovered. He was the youngest US service member killed the in the Vietnam War.
