It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call.

  • 2018 Memorial Day

    Posted on 5/29/18 - by Scoops wife
    Dear Wade, I'm remembering you this Memorial Day. I only knew you briefly in 1971 as you & my husband Mike graduated from WOC school at Ft. Rucker. You were just a few years younger than us. I remember you as being a very sweet young man who loved the Lord & his family. Your hopes & dreams included marrying your girlfriend whose name I believe was Gina. After graduating as a WO 1 your orders took you to Vietnam. Mike staid at Rucker to transition into Chinooks. I remember that Mike wrote to you when you were deployed & his last letter came back as undeliverable. We prayed for your safe return but that was not to be. Mike has since passed on to the Lord also. Perhaps you & he are stick buddies in heaven. I've sent your name & story to our adult children so your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

    Does anyone know how I can contact Wade's family? Does anyone know if JPAC every recovered or attempted to recover his remains?
  • You are teaching us all

    Wade and I went to Lake Taylor HS together. Graduated June 1970. He is the only person in our class who died in Vietnam, and may be the only person in our class who served there. I am giving a lecture on Vietnam for students at the Naval War College next month and will include his experience in the lecture.

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.
