    This is the brother that I never really got to know. He died in 68 and I was only 6 yrs. old. I have memories and stories that keeps him in my heart and I do remember very few things, such as the time we went to Fort Campbell and visited (I have pictures). He's gone but not forgotten by his baby sister

  • NOT FORGOTTEN

    Posted on 6/12/14 - by Widow; former Mrs. Baize
    I am the widow of Gary C. Baize who died 8/1968.
    I remember when we dated, I remember when we got married full of dreams &
    moved into our lst apartment & bought a dark blue Ford car, I remember when the draft papers came, I remember quitting my job & going to Louisiana while you were in AIT Training in Louisana, I remember the last day of training & picking you up & you telling me you were going to Viet Nam, I remember we had about a month off before you had to go; we visited your parents & then finished our time in Illinois, I remember talking till late the night before I took you to the airport across from where you are buried, I remember being at work & the police calling to find out if I was the wife, I remember being called downstairs to personnel & then being instructed to go into a room where a military man met me & him telling me you were missing, I remember that I could not listen to his words & I had to have him repeat everything, I remember being in a daze & having my fellow worker take me home & the tears I shed for several days, I remember a military man coming to the door at home about 3 days later & telling me you were found; deceased, I remember the visitation & the scores of people attending, I remember laying across your casket when everyone had left, I remember the funeral & the cemetery where guns were shot in your honor, I remember the emptiness & the strange & odd feeling of being a widow at age 20, I remember the town paper coming to work to take a picture of this widow & enter an article about my journey, I remember my young fellow workers rallying around me & including me in their activities, I remember the first year being the toughest & then deciding I would seek the Lord & lean on Him for my future. Thank you Gary for serving our country, giving your life for the freedom of our country.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/19/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Gary Cecil Baize, 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

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.
