John C. Usilton
Pratt Street, Frankford
The 28-year-old Woodrow Wilson Junior High School graduate had been in the Army for two years and the Navy Reserves for one, but thirsted for more action. He joined the Navy in June 1968 and asked to be assigned to a Seabee outfit, knowing he would be sent to Vietnam, his wife said. The utilitiesman second class was assigned to Naval Support Activity in Da Nang, Quang Nam Province, where he died on July 12, 1969. Survivors include his wife, son, daughter, parents, a brother and two sisters.
