48 years after the death of Private First Class Michael Francis Smith in the Vietnam War, his family is coming together to celebrate a great honor.
Smith, who was from Nebraska, was only 19 years old when he was killed on April 28, 1968.
Today, Smith's four siblings were given a special flag in remembrance of his service and ultimate sacrifice. The family says Smith's memory will always live on in their hearts.
Smith would have turned 68 this March.
