SAN DIEGO - In a ceremony that was brief but redolent of the sacrifice and pain of war, one of the last bits of unfinished business from the Vietnam War was completed Monday at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. The remains of Marine Pfc. Richard Rivenburgh were buried 37 years after his helicopter was shot down during the attempt to rescue the crew of the U.S. merchant ship Mayaguez, which had been taken hostage byCambodia'sKhmer Rouge. The rescue is considered the last battle of the Vietnam War. Rivenburgh's name was one of the last placed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington.
