This image released through the Department of Defense shows the photo used for the obituary of Army Sgt. Steve Flaherty, 22, who was killed in Vietnam in 1969. Letters that Flaherty was carrying when he was killed were taken by the Vietnamese after his death and were returned to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Monday, June 4, 2012, in exchange for a Vietnamese soldier's diary that was taken from his body by an American GI.
