  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Wayne Morris Horne, 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

    25th YONKERS G.I. IS KILLEDBRBRBy Janice MayerBRBRPfc. Wayne Horne, 21-year-old son of Mrs. Frederick Horne of 104 Hawthorne Ave., died Thursday in South Vietnam. He is the 25th Yonkers serviceman to give his life in the Vietnam conflict.BRWord of her son's death was received Saturday by Mrs. Horne. Two brothers, Charles and Frederick also survive. BRThe Defense Department informed the grief-stricken mother that her son had died 'as the result of wounds received while a passenger in a military vehicle on combat operations.BRPfc. Horne would have been in Vietnam two months Nov. 22. He was drafted last February, receiving basic training at Ft. Jackson, S.C. and advanced infantry training at Ft. Polk. At Cu Chi, near Dau Tieng, Vietnam, he was a member of the 25th Infantry Division.BRTime during his one year tour of duty in Vietnam had been passing quickly for Horne. In a recent letter he wrote, 'yesterday made one month exactly that I have been in Vietnam already. Time flies by here. I'll be home before you know it.'BRThere were reasons why Pfc. Horne could look toward his return. On Jan. 3 he became engaged to a Yonkers girl, Miss Barbara Moretti. They were to have been married in the January following Wayne's return next September.BRPfc. Horne had other plans for his future. He had been graduated from Saunders Trades and Technical High School in 1967 and had attended the Westchester Business Institute. His plans called for him to complete his courses there.BRLater in the week, further word will be received by the family as to the return of the body. Funeral services will be at Flynn's Memorial Home on South Broadway.
