Lt. Kelsey was killed while leading his men in action in June of 1967 as part of Operation Union II in Quang Tin Province. The memorial is being held because his actions on that day have only been recently recognized by the state. The service is not limited to recognizing Lt. Kelsey, but all those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of our nation. More information of Lt. Kelsey's service provided by his family can be found here.
