Did You Know Edward Joseph Zewert, Jr.

I just received this letter from a researcher for the 3-506th Infantry (Currahees) of the 101st Airborne Division (Screaming Eagles).  Please read her letter and let me (or her) know if you can assist.


My name is Jane Fulkerson and I am a Veteran (Sgt. US Army 1965-68).  In my spare time I currently work as a Researcher for the 3-506th Infantry (Currahees) of the 101st Airborne Division (Screaming Eagles).

Recently I have been researching a man named EDWARD  JOSEPH  ZEWERT, Jr.  who was a member of this unit and was killed in Vietnam.  He was a graduate of Far Rockaway High School.   He was killed on April 26, 1968 and was 20 years old at the time of his death.   I don't know what class he graduated with, as I am still trying to locate a Senior Photo of him, but I have a copy of a death notice which was placed in the Long Island Press on Tuesday, April 30, 1968, which states he was a graduate of Far Rockaway High School.  I have written to Far Rockaway H.S. and have requested a copy of his Senior picture. I have not yet received it.

If you by any remote chance have a copy of the mid 60s yearbooks and could send me a copy of his photo, I would really appreciate that.  All information I receive goes to the unit historian, who is currently writing a book of tribute and remembrance to all members of the unit who died in Vietnam.

Thanks much for your help in this matter.
