This month, in celebration of Native American Heritage Month, we will be highlighting a few remarkable contributors to Indian Country. In no way is this list comprehensive or extensive, but for the next few weeks, we will present a brief biography a day. Eddie Molina Jr., is number 30. 

At least 58,320 American soldiers died during the Vietnam Conflict, and Captain (CPT) Eddie Molina Jr., was one of the hundreds of Native warriors who lost his life during the war. 

CPT Molino, a citizen of the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Nation, was part of the Special Forces Red and Green Berets. A pilot, CPT Molino was part of the rotary wings aircrews that flew helicopters in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.
Born April 21, 1945, CPT Molino was killed in action on May 10, 1970, during his second tour of duty in Vietnam. CPT Molino enlisted in 1966, after attending college at Long Beach State in California.

A military legacy, CPT Molino’s father Edward Molino Sr., served four years in the United States Marines and two years in the US Army. CPT Molino’s uncle Wallace Jones served in the US Army, and his aunt Josephine Molino White served in a MASH unit.

In addition, CPT Molino’s mother Leona Jones Molino, along with his aunt Lida Molino Sanders helped build warships as certified welders during World War II.
In an effort to further preserve the legacy of those who sacrificed all in Vietnam, the virtual "Wall of Faces" allows family and friends to share memories, post pictures, and connect with each other.

Eddie, Fallen but not forgotten. My Grandfather, George Jr, brother to your Grandmother, was a USCG WWII vet, and member of your tribe too. I’m a Fort McDermitt Numu, USAF vet 1969-74. Your brother, George, is a great friend of mine.
