Some sources indicate CPT Steele's Army "Home of Record" as Bliss, Idaho. The Home of Record indicates the place from which an individual begins his or her service.

Internet sources indicate CPT Steele was struck by fire received while participating in a airborne assault [probably airmobile] near the Marble Mountains south of China Beach on the coast near DaNang.
