    Notes 
    • Staff Sergeant Davidson was a member of the 5th Special Forces Group. On October 5, 1970, he was a member of a reconnaissance patrol operating about 12 miles inside Laos west of Ta Bat. The patrol was attacked by a hostile force and Staff Sergeant Davidson was killed. His remains were not recovered. His name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial.

      Some records say he died 6Oct1971. Apparently this is a result of a policy that declared someone MIA to be offically dead one year and one day after the (presumed actual) death date.
