- Birth: Oct. 6, 1984 Virginia, Vietnam Death: Dec. 3, 2004, Iraq In life, Binh N. Le adopted this country as his own. In death, his country returned the honor. Le, 20, a Marine corporal who was born in Vietnam, grew up in Fairfax County and died in Iraq, was buried yesterday under an unseasonably warm sun at Arlington National Cemetery. Over his coffin stood two Marines in dress uniform, one holding a U.S. flag steady in the breeze, the other the flag of the fallen South Vietnam. Le was killed Dec. 3 in Al Anbar province -- by a car bomb set off near a checkpoint he was manning, his family was told. Cpl. Matthew A. Wyatt, 21, of Millstadt, Ill., also died in the attack. Le, a member of the 5th Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, was serving his second tour in Iraq and was scheduled to come home in April.
