  • Remebering Eddie 50 years later

    Posted on 5/20/18 - by Bernie Gleason bernie.gleason@gmail.com
    I am 5 years older than Eddie but I grew up in the same neighborhood and followed a similar path: Immaculate Conception School, Malden Catholic and many days at Morrison Park. One of my best friends (Bobby Smith) lived on the first floor (Argys on the 2nd floor) of the two-decker on Linwood St., so Eddie was always around and greatand very smart kid. Every time that I reflect on the Vietnam War, my first thoughts are the shock of hearing the news 50 years ago that Eddie was a casualty.

  • Edward's death was how the war came home to me

    I was newly married and working at the Medford Public Library while my husband started grad school at Fletcher. I soon became good friends with Edward's sister Cathy. The war still seemed very far away to me. When Edward was killed, Cathy, devastated of course, called me to tell her employer that she would not be coming to work. Learning from her about him, his character, his bright future -- knowing also how justifiably proud his parents were of him -- I came to understand that those decided to go to war were high-minded, even if I myself felt the war was ill advised.

  • Always a winner

    Eddie (along with John Mackesy) and I were roommates my freshman year at Harvard. He was the ideal combination of fun and serious study, showing this brash kid from Dorchester how it's done. Eddie was the only person I ever knew who won the Avalon-Hill war game of "Waterloo" as Napoleon. I enlisted in the Army Reserve in my junior year, and was called to active duty in January of 1969, spending my Vietnam tour in HHQ of the 18th Engineer Brigade. Eddie was one of many of my friends who willingly served at a time when such service was reviled and ridiculed. Some of them were wounded, forever sadly Eddie's name is on The Wall, one among many, but always one of a kind. Rest in Peace.

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.
