Rudy was my cousin. I remember the day that we got the news that he had been killed. I know that none of us have ever gotten over his death. He will remain in our hearts forever.
I could not get Dungee out because it was too hot in the LZ (Landing Zone), but I did not leave him. I remember hearing him continuously calling for help. We assured him that we were still with him, but I could not get him out because [there were] too many bullets flying near us. I remember when we were taken to the hospital and they brought Dungee out on a stretcher. He gave us his thumbs up. That was the worst day of my life. I wish I could see...Walker [and] Ingraham and the others that helped out that day.
