My great uncle, Phillip Lee Culver, served in D Company, and was killed with two other men at FSB Smoke by a deranged soldier who opened fire on them without provocation. I was wondering if anyone could give me insight as to what happened, or if there are any pictures of him on this site. I've looked through many albums on this site, however, I have only seen a few pictures of him when he was younger, and would not be able to recognize him. If anything is available, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
