Had the honor of serving with Terry while in Vietnam. He was our corpsman and a great guy with whom to go on patrol. He enjoyed a great sense of humor and was well respected by all those with whom he came in contact.

He was a member of Alpha/One, First Reconnaissance Battalion.
Rest In Peace!

Mr. Coffin will always be considered a HERO for serving our country during a time when fighting for freedom was essential. You fought in one of the most difficult wars that our country was ever in. Thank you Sir for your bravery, courage and sacrifice. May God hold you in his loving arms. Rest in Peace.
