Return to Service Member Profiles


 

Corporal Gary Lee Rehn, who joined the U.S. Marine Corps from Minnesota, was a member of Company D, 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion, 3rd Marine Division. On November 9, 1967, CPL Rehn and his patrol came under hostile fire in southern Thua Thien-Hue Province, South Vietnam, in the vicinity of Grid Coordinates ZC 000 900. Other members of the patrol observed CPL Rehn fatally wounded with a gunshot wound to his body. Enemy presence in the area prevented immediate searches for Cpl Rehnís remains, and they were not recovered following the war. Today, Corporal Rehn is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
