BIOGRAPHY

Rogelio Saucedo was born and raised in Eagle Pass.  He was born to Librado and Carmelita Saucedo.  His family moved to Odessa in 1963 when his father took a job with Permian Metals.  He attended Ector High School for one year.  He entered the U.S. Army as a draftee from Odessa in the fall of 1966.  He was inducted at Abilene, Texas and completed basic training at Fort Bliss, Texas and Artillery Crewman training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. 

.

 He began his tour in Vietnam on March 23, 1967 and was assigned as an ammo bearer for the A Battery, 1st Battalion, 21st Artillery Group, First Cavalry Division.  He had just joined his unit in the field and was killed in an accident within a few days.  He was filling sand bags on a work detail when the sand bag bank caved it and caused him to hit his head against a military vehicle.  He died immediately from a neck fracture.

He was buried with full military honors in the our Lady of Refuge in  Eagle Pass, Texas.  His father was killed in a work related accident July 20, 1968 at Permian Metals and is buried next to Rogelio.  The family returned to Eagle Pass following his father's death.  Also surviving him was his mother and brothers, Raul, David, Oscar, Ernest and his sisters Imelda, Norma and Gracius.
