40 years later, family learns truth of soldier’s Vietnam War death | WPSD Local 6

PADUCAH, KY- The Wall That Heals is coming to Paducah in October. There are nearly 58,000 names on the traveling replica Vietnam Memorial. They are the men and women who never came home.

MSGT William “Bill” E. Lawson is one of them. Bill was in the U.S. Army Special Forces, a Green Beret. The work was hard and dangerous. He was one of the country’s best. Bill was killed in 1967, but it would be 40 years before his family learned the truth about the secret mission that took his life.

“It’s somebody I never knew, although I carried the pride,” Mike Lawson said of his father.
