    Dear WO Franklin Delano Audilet, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Our family hero

    Posted on 12/8/11 - by Loretta Iris Buchko baba_b@verizon.net
    Growing up on a farm in Texas, Franklin is #6 and I am #7 in a family of eight
    children. Hard times-lots of chores on the farm and in
    the fields. Good times - lots of food and community dances and feasts. In school
    my brother was my protector.
    His decision to join the Armed Services seemed natural as both of his brothers had already made that decision in years earlier. Losing him in the war was unimaginable. His wife had the responsibility of raising three children alone - so unfair! It is sad
    that Franklin could not be there to see his children grow up. And then not to know his grandchildren! Franklin would have been a wonderful grandfather! Our family misses our true hero.
    I will never forget you, Franklin. Eternal Memory!

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.
