CPL Ivan Clifford Broeffle was killed in action while serving with
the US Army in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam at the age of 21. Ivan had
not had a marker all of this time, but this year the US Department of Veterans Affairs
sent a bronze marker and the dedication was held at 1:00 PM on July
25, 2009 in Emo, Ontario, Canada.
In attendance were the family and friends of Ivan, the Canadian Vietnam
Veterans Association of Manitoba, the Minnesota Patriot Guard, the White
Earth Veterans Association of Minnesota, the Royal Canadian Legion
Branch 29 of Fort Frances, the 1CAV (Canadian Army Veterans), and the
Vietnam Veterans in Canada.
We would like to acknowledge the Fort Frances Royal Canadian Legion for
their warm hospitality and luncheon after the dedication service.
