The last two Americans KIA in the Vietnam War were Corporal Charles McMahon, Jr., and Lance Corporal Darwin Lee Judge.  Source: U.S. Marines in Vietnam: The Bitter End, 1973-1975, by George Dunham and David Quinlan.  The same book discusses unit identities, scattered in various places.  This is the final volume of the USMC official history of the Vietnam War.

LCpl Darwin Judge along with Cpl Charles McMahon was the last Killed In Action serviceman in the Vietnam War.   LCpl Judge was born and raised in Marshalltown Iowa.   He was an Eagle Scout and a fine young man of the community.   He completed Marine Corps Boot Camp and Marine Security Guard School before shipping to Saigon, R. Vietnam as a Marine Security Guard to the American Embassy.   He and Cpl Charles McMahon were killed together within the first two weeks of joining the detachment.   LCpl Judge and Cpl McMahon was killed by a rocket attack from Five NVA Divisions defending the Defense Attaché  Building on Tan Son Nhut airbase.  On April 29-30 2000 we honored LCpl Judge with a Memorial Services from 24th Marines and his fellow Saigon Marines.

Today 29 April 2001 LCpl Judge was honored at his Park in Marshalltown, Iowa with a Flag Pole, the American and Marine Corps Flag and free lighting from the citizens of Marshalltown.  Earlier in April 2000 we planted two new trees in the Judge park to honor LCpl Judge and Cpl McMahon.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa, April 28 — Young Americans were paying the ultimate price in Vietnam right up until the final days — and what added to the tragedy is that some were virtually lost in the chaos and the eagerness of America to put Vietnam behind it. But one young hero is finally getting the recognition he deserves   DARWIN JUDGE was already a hero. There’s a park named after him and a place of honor at his high school.  “He was rock stable,” said one of his former schoolteachers. “He was the kind of guy America was built around.”  An Eagle Scout, he was one of the last Marines to die in combat in Vietnam, killed in action when he was just 19 as enemy shells slammed into Than Son Nhut Airbase 25 years ago tomorrow,    “If he’d stayed at the embassy like he was supposed to, be on the lookout, he would have been alright,” said his mother Ira. In the chaos of those final days, his body wasn’t found and returned home until a year later.   In the bureaucratic confusion, he never got the purple heart nor burial with honors he deserved. “I love my country but I’m not so sure we have done what we should do to say thank you” said Ken Locke, Judge’s boyhood pal.  

Below is Ken Locke's memorial web page to Darwin Judge
http://members.tripod.com/~kclocke/judge.html

 For nearly 25 years Locke has wanted to pay proper tribute to Darwin Judge.    “He was my hero; I wanted to be like him,” Locke said.  A COMMON HERO   He was a hero for others, too. As Saigon fell and thousands tried to flee, Marine Doug Potratz tried frantically to evacuate his three-year-old daughter Becky, but could not until Judge intervened.   “He picked her up, put her on his back, piggyback style, and quick as a bunny ran, ran out to the plane and put her on the plane,” Potratz said.  Almost 25 years later, on a website dedicated to the fall of Saigon, Potratz , now in California, wrote about what Judge had done.    Two thousand miles away in Indiana, Ken Locke read the account and contacted Potratz.  Realizing they had a hero in common, the men, after countless phone calls and letters, persuaded the Marines to give Judge a service, Saturday, with full military honors.   It will bring some measure of comfort to Judge’s parents.  

When you see so many young people take drugs and do terrible things, it makes you a little proud to have somebody like Darwin,” his father Henry said.   Others are still thanking Darwin Judge 25 years later.  Remember that small child he rescued? She went on to graduate, with honors, from the University of Southern California.  “If it wasn’t for him, I’d probably still be their   instead of here doing what I’m doing now and being who I am,” Becky said.    And for anyone who might argue that it’s too late now to offer thanks, Darwin Judge’s mother has an answer: “It’s not too late to thank them and show your appreciation that they was over there to do what they was supposed to do.”    Twenty-five years later, Darwin Judge will get what he deserved and those he touched will get what they need.
