REMEMBRANCES

  • Alter boy at Scott Cook's Funeral

    Posted on 10/2/17 - by Patrick Tenny
    I went to the same grade school in Pacific, MO (St. Bridgets) as Scott. I was 6 years younger than Scott but remember him vividly even though he was in 8th grade when I was in second. He and his brothers were very distinguished looking. I was the alter boy at his Catholic funeral. I have no memory of it being a cold day at cemetery, I have visited the wall finding his name multiple times.

  • Final Mission of PFC Scott H. Cook

    Posted on 8/4/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SGT Richard G. Godbout served with A Company, 4th Battalion, 23rd Mechanized Infantry Regiment “Tomahawks”, 25th Infantry Division. He died on December 30, 1967 in Cu Chi, Hua Nghia Province, South Vietnam, when the APC (armored personnel carrier) he was traveling on was attacked by NVA soldiers with a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG). SGT Godbout was sitting behind the .50 machine gun on top of the vehicle when it received a direct hit. The attack also killed PFC Scott H. Cook, PFC William C. Markle Jr., and PFC Wylie O. Phillips, who were sitting behind Godbout on top of the APC. SGT Godbout had previously received the Bronze Star for service beyond the call of duty when he volunteered to go on a security mission. He grew up on Petain Street, Manchester, NH, and graduated from the Goffstown High School. He was married to Linda St. Lawrence of Rutland, VT. His story is told in a book written by Jon Hovde, who was a witness to Richard's death in LEFT FOR DEAD, which tells of Hovde's own dramatic experiences in Vietnam." [Taken from issuu.com]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/25/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Scott Howard Cook, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    As I look up at the Wall
    And you are as you were then
    Sometimes I can't believe
    How long it's really been.

    I reach out to the Wall
    Then gently touch your name
    I've been here many times
    And always it's the same.

    I feel your loving touch
    As my fingers rub your name
    I'm so very glad
    That once again I came.

    I press my face against the stone
    And feel your strong pulse beat
    There is still so much of you
    No war could e'er defeat.

    I can clearly hear your voice
    As you tell me you're ok
    That forever you will be
    Just as you are today.

    I feel your body warmth
    Through cold and chiseled stone
    It brings back so many times
    That you and I have known.

    I lightly kiss my fingers
    Then send the kiss your way
    Just as I did then
    On that cold October day.

    I want to thank those people
    Who built this wall for you
    They've brought you back to me
    What a wondrous thing to do.

    I never say goodbye
    For I'll be back you see
    And I will always know
    That you wait here for me.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
