REMEMBRANCES

  • Ground Casualty

    Posted on 4/14/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    PFC Brian E. Jay was a helicopter mechanic and crew chief serving with C Troop, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division. On August 29, 1970, PFC Jay’s OH-6A (#67-16528) was parked in a revetment (parking area for aircraft that is surrounded by blast walls on three sides) in Phu Bai Airfield in Thua Thien Province, RVN. While the helicopter was running, Jay reached up to secure C-rations from top of revetment. While doing this, he lost his balance and fell back into the main rotor blades. He was fatally injured after being struck on the top of his head. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and armyaircrews.com]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 4/7/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Brian Edward Jay, 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, 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.
