Those who served the 11th Light Infantry Brigade have a project that falls in line with the Coffelt Database. Our project, to honor the men who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us and should never be forgotten. As the men of the 11th LIB visit the cemeteries where our heroes are laid to rest, they are taking photos of their grave marker. Our website contains lists all casualties of the 11th LIB and also casualty lists by unit. These lists contain the name of the cemetery where that soldier is buried. If you would like to participate in this project, we ask that you take a high quality close up of the grave marker and submit via the Grave Marker Submission Form. Instructions are on the form. Thank you for your participation.
For your convenience we have included the cemetery name and location list, and the full casualty list for the 11th Light Infantry Brigade. The cemetery list is color banded by cemetery name. If you would be willing to take a photo of a grave marker in a cemetery you may be visiting, the 11th LIB and Coffelt Database thank you. The listing is banded with color to group names located at the same cemetery.
You will notice that we have an enormous amount of casualties where the cemetery they were laid to rest is unknown (shown with a pink overlay). If you have information on a burial location, please contact the webmaster with that information and proof of location. Also note that this does not indicate those casualties where we already have grave marker photos. You will have to compare with the complete 11th LIB Casualty List. Thank you.
Our submission form is presently unavailable. Please email the Webmaster with your copyright permission (the photo must be yours and you must own the copyright to it) and attach a high quality photo of the grave marker. Please indicate the name of the cemetery, county, city and state, a statement giving us copyright permission to reproduce the image. Thank you.

Our project, to honor the men of the 11th Light Infantry Brigade who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us and should never be forgotten. As the men of the 11th LIB, or anyone, visit the cemeteries where our heroes are laid to rest, they are taking photos of their grave marker. These photos are then submitted and we link them to our 11th LIB Casualty lists. Read more...
Bruce Flaherty now has flags flown over the capitol and certificates for each of the families of all 289 KIA’s that served the 4th/3rd Infantry in Vietnam. His plan is to locate the families and provide them the flag and certificate, his reason is simple-to let the families know that their loved one is not forgotten.
While the 11th Light Infantry Brigade does not presently have a formal association, we do have a very active Facebook page. This page is a private Facebook Group page and you must request to join. When you request to join, you are sent a message with questions regarding unit or unit that supported the brigade, and when served or relative's information that served. If you do not respond within 14 days Facebook will delete your request. You will find the page listed as 11th Light Infantry Brigade Veterans Association.
