  • Thank you for your service and sacrifice

    Robert "Bob" Baker was my father's best friend, I believe they went to navigator school together. Over this Memorial Weekend he has been strong on my mind. I love looking at the first 2 pictures here, my dad kept them close and talked of you often. Thank you for your sacrifice and I was blessed that my father retired and came home safely prior to your crash. Freedom is not free - thank you for the ultimate sacrifice.

    Major Baker (Service Years 1956 - 1970, Primary AFSC/MOS
    1585A-Navigator) flew aboard the C-123K (55-4574) with a loss of 6 crew and 73 ARVN passengers that crashed during poor weather. The C-123 was en route from Tan Son Nhut AB to Nha Trang AB when it struck trees on a ridge at an elevation of 4600 feet, some 500 feet below the top. The wreckage was found nine days after the accident.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/2/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear Major Robert Lee Baker, 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

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.
