Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/4/13 - by Curt CarterDear SP4 Henry J Fugett, sirMORE
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

You were always a kid cousin
until I saw you just before deployment in your uniform.
You had matured into a very fine young man, but you still had that gentle grin that made you special. We still miss you...

Memories of Western HighPosted on 6/21/02 - by Eugene BryantHenry and I were High School buds. He moved just before senior year and Graduated from Dearborn High about ten miles from Western. I lost track of the Fugitive and I to ended up doing a tour in Nam August 68 to August 69. I started working for Ford Motor Company and was assigned to check inbound truck one day. Part of the procedure was to check and note the driver lic. number of who drove the loads into the yard. On this day a truck rolls in and I ask the driver for his lic. I look at it and the last name is Fugett. I said to the man hey I went to high school with a guy named Henry Fugett. He just started crying I felt terrible but I didn't know. He then told me Henry had been killed in Nam. I think often about the parents of those who did not come back. I am an only child and when I returned my parents looked like they had not ate in that whole year. You are not forgoten Henry R.I.P. Cowboys forever !MORE
Never ForgottenPosted on 2/5/01 - by Mary Wooliver FazakasHenry was a dear friend of mine... a "buddy". He was lonely when he came to Dearborn. High School is a difficult time to make a move. He was funny, sweet and a loyal friend. I remember the week before he left for Vietnam. It was sad, frightening and bittersweet. In the 60's, the "teens" who remained at home had no clue of what our friends experienced. I don't think I had any idea until years later. I will always live with the guilt of not recognizing the terror and loneliness my friends faced. I can never tell Henry thank you however, I pledge to Henry that I will thank every living Vet that I know every chance I get. I will apologize for not recognizing their sacrifice & their experience. I will "smile" and think of Henry forever. I will always wish that I could have shared more "life" with him in what should have been a long, long future. His funeral will remain one of the saddest days of my life. Love to his family.MORE
Henry Fugett - The "FUGITIVE"Posted on 3/12/00 - by Randy Ferguson firstname.lastname@example.orgHenry was a fun guy. He was a high school friend that moved before we graduated. I knew him when he attended Western High School in Detroit. Later he moved to Dearborn.MORE
It saddens me to think that such a fun loving, good natured person should be swept from this Earth at such an early age. Don't make his death for naught . . .remember who and what he was. Keep the thought of "freedom", from any type of aggression, as a way to remember Henry. He fought to keep others from persecuting a weaker people. Hard to think that way now, in light of all we have learned since our fight in Viet Nam, but Henry lost his life helping others.
