"Foe's Price on Head of Marine is $6,300."
New York Times, December 15, 1967, p. 16.
This article out of Danang, South Vietnam reads:
"Vietcong guerrillas are offering a reward of 750,000 piasters ($6,300) for a United States
Marine they call "Sergeant Black Man."
The clandestine Vietcong radio says that the guerrillas do not have to have the body of Sgt.
Marvin Murrell, a 21-year-old Negro from Syracuse. But they want him alive or they want his head.
Sergeant Murrell heads a 17-man unit stationed in Tuyloan, about 20 miles SW of here, which
claims to have killed 183 Vietcong in 15 monthes."
