  • To my "Poor Wounded War Hero"

    Posted on 5/20/14 - by Margaret E. "Sunkel" Wright
    It has taken me 44 years to find where Timmy was buried. I was one of the Navy Nurses who worked on ward 4-D when Tim arrived on our unit during the night shift. His lower face was a mass of bandages and his arms were flailing. Later when he was better I asked why he was fighting those trying to help him. His reply, "I was hungry." I worked with him from 1968-Nov.1969 when orders sent me to USNH Guam, MI. He knew me as Ltjg.. Margaret Sunkel. I heard about his death from one of my "buddy" nurses who remained at Bethesda. He was such a character and a fine Marine. He had a sense of humor that abled him to go through so many plastic surgery revisions. I was sad to hear of his death and will never forget him. His courage was a badge of his valor and bravery in the face of terrible wounds. I wondered if his name was on the "Wall" and discovered it in the late 1980's when I lived near the Riverside National Cemetery in CA. Only recently, 2014, I found his resting place was in Marietta GA. National Cemetery which is on the route for me driving from where I live now in Jacksonville, FL to where I grew up in central Illinois. I plan to stop and visit on May 22, 2014 around noon. I would like to meet some of his family but I noticed both parents are also gone.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Timothy Ray Faust, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter
