REMEMBRANCES

  • Ft Wolters

    Ard was my roommate at Ft Wolters. I cried when I received word of his death. I understand his remains were finally brought back to the USA in 2002 to Albertville , Alabama.

  • A Good Man

    I served with Randy in Viet Nam. He and I shared a sleep-bunker during the action that eventually took his life. He was a great pilot and a good friend. I will never forget him.

  • I was a child, but remember the MIA-POW bracelet bearing his name

    Posted on 6/3/16 - by D'chell Ward Ferguson sunlayin@yahoo.com
    I was only about 4 1/2 yrs old according to the date of casualty, but I remember the bracelet. His family were member of our church. Here at the Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola, there is a Vietnam memorial booth in a hangar. I always make a point to go out to the hangar so I can go see the bracelets. Every time I go in this booth, I am overwhelmed with so much sadness and when I see those bracelets I cry. I've read articles about him and what happened and I can't imagine what he and his fellow soldiers were going through, and to be so young. Rest in peace Randy.

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.
