Danny Eugene King was the son of Charlie Tap King and Rachel Izora Shaw. He died of wounds in Pleiku, Vietnam.

My name is Malisa Brazzanovich. I reside in Knoxville Tennessee. I am the great niece of Danny E. King who was killed in the Vietnam war. To my knowledge, I am his only surviving relative. His flag and purple heart were lost in a house fire. Danny’s sister, Marie, had possession of the flag and purple heart and also passed in the fire. I am asking for information on my uncle as I never met him. I’m 39. Thank you so much for your time and help. malisajbrazzanovich@gmail.com
