Vietnam Conflict Hero Laid to Rest

Retired Master Sgt. Roy P. Benavidez was laid to rest at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas. The Army rendered full military honors at the burial to the Vietnam hero and Medal of honor recipient.

Benavidez died Nov. 29 at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, of respiratory failure and other ailments, at age 63. He had been ill for some months. He is survived by his wife and three daughters.

Thirty years ago in Vietnam, on May 2, 1968, a badly injured Benavidez helped save the lives of at least eight Special Forces comrades. Benavidez had sustained nearly 40 wounds during a firefight with North Vietnamese forces west of Loc Ninh, yet he carried other wounded soldiers to evacuation helicopters under heavy enemy fire and through hand-to-hand combat.
