REMEMBRANCES

  • Memorial Day at the Vietnam Memorial Washington DC

    Posted on 5/22/14 - by Mike and Jen
    We will be in Washington at the event on Memorial Day at the Vietnam Memorial for their annual ceremony. We will find Francis' name on the wall and say a very deep prayer for his family. Especially for Joseph who is so heartbroken to this day. We will pray that God will provide comfort and peace through Christ. Francis represents to us all the young men we knew who answered the call and paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We humbly thank the family for this amazing young man.

  • Remembering Uncle Fran

    Posted on 5/22/14 - by Lori
    I'm one of Fran's nieces. I never met him, but I grew up hearing lots of stories about him. If anyone out there has a photo of him, it would mean a lot to our entire family if we could get a copy. You can reach me at Lkparker(at)aol(dot)com-- please send them my way and I will share them with the Driscoll clan. Would love to hear stories & memories, too.
    For those who asked earlier, Fran is in St. John's cemetery in Attleboro, Massachusetts. I just checked on the grave site a few months ago and was happy to see it's in excellent condition.

  • Brown Class of 1964

    Posted on 4/21/14 - by Bruce W. Bean
    Fran and I were freshmen together at Brown in the fall of 1960. We lived on on the fourth floor of Everett House. Not a great place to study, but a lot of fun.

    I went through AFROTC at Brown and served on the Air Force Airborne Battlefield Command and Control Center ("ABCCC") in 1967-68. I was stationed at Udorn in Northern Thailand while Fran was at Ubon. Fran's aircraft recovered at Udorn one day in january 1968 when weather had shut down Ubon. I bumped into him at the Officer's Club. Fran was returning from a "Mig Sweep" and was still pumped up from the adrenalin such a mission requires. We had a brief time together before weather opened up at Ubon.

    My ABCCC, Hillsboro, controlled the air over Southern Laos ("Tigerhound") where Fran's aircraft was apparently hit. I was not flying that day but learned his fate as we briefed for our 1 February mission.

    This year is the 50th Reunion of the Class of 1964. We'll remember Fran at the end of May.

    Does anyone know where he is buried? If in Attleboro, I'd like to stop by and pay my respects.

    Thanks much, Fran

    I happened upon the photo of FRANCIS MURTAUGH DRISCOLL on another website, Then I read a tribute written by his sister. Everything she wrote about her big brother I could see in his face. And I just wanted his picture to be included here. To his sister, Thank you for sharing your story about your brother. I am so sorry for your loss...and what a loss it is.

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.
