REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 9/4/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Ron Jackson Haynes, 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

  • Goodbye My Friend.

    It's been many years since I lived at Citico, before my family moved to Madisonville, but I remember as small boys playing together and spending time at Citico Beach.

    It was a shock to me to find out later when I came home that you had been killed in action in Vietnam, I was also serving in Vietnam the day you died.

    I will never forget our friendship.

    Rest In Peace My Friend

    In honor of your ultimate sacrifice to guarantee the freedom we enjoy and many times take for granted, The 8th grade class of Vonore Elementary School made it our goal to travel to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C and "Bring Back the names" of our heros from Monroe County Tennessee. On May the 9th 2004 we reached our goal as we arrived back in Vonore aboard the bus that had taken twenty nine of our fellow students, two teachers and nine parents to Washington, D.C to see you and your fellow fallen soldiers names not only return home but return home together. we would also like to say Thank You for fighting for us, and keeping our nations free I just wanted you to know that you all are remembered.

  • Survival Assistance Officer

    Posted on 9/28/02 - by Lynn Hickman
    Having just returned from a Vietnam tour, I was with the ROTC Detachment at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Assigned as Survival Assistance Officer by 3rd Army Hqs in Atlanta, I found his home place located in Monroe County, TN, up along the Little Tennessee River at a Post Office named Citico Beach. I found the Haynes home just beyond the Citico Beach country store on the Road of the same name, a short distance before the turnoff to Mountain Settlement Road. Part of this area was later covered by the lake when the Little Tennessee River was restricted by the Tellico Dam. His mother was stricken very badly with Rheumatoid Arthritis. He is interned at the Citico Beach Baptist Church along Citico Creek Road. The church is on a hill on the right side of Citico Creek Road just past the intersection of Mountain Cemetery Road. The whole area is adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Forest. Hunting in the area during 2000, a member of my group had known the family and thought that Steve Dockery’s mother had passed away a few years ago. He was not sure about her status nor about the remaining family, but thought there were no relatives living in that area.

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.
