    BUDDY , my late husband whom i love very very much i miss very very much . as of July 13th 2017 we would have been married 49 years . I wish he was still alive to be able to celebrate our anniversary together. I remember you didn't know how to dance with your two left feet ha ha so i taught you every weekend how to with our crowd. We had the most beautiful wedding in the world, 150 people at our lady of Calvary catholic church. The wedding ended too soon shortly after that you left to Vietnam . you were only with me 23 days until you left for Vietnam. then three months later i got the knock on the door from your parents and a younger soldier telling me you were no longer with us. i know your still here with me everyday i feel you in my heart , love your baby doll Barbara Kite - Tudisco

  • To Buddy

    Posted on 11/24/13
    It is difficult to comprehend 45 years have past. I will never forget the night I can home from my job at the gas station and seeing all of my family in this sad and morning state. Until my younger brother came up to me, and said you had been killed in action in Viet Nam. I have never forgot you, and as I get older I think of you more often. I wish we could talk to each other just to hear you again or see you shooting basketballs..you were very good at it. Your hopes and your dreams came to an end before the world could see this wonderful young gladiator achieve in life and at the PFD. The great person you were as your dad 'Uncle Harry' was. Buddy I miss you very much!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/1/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Harry Turner Kite Jr, 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.
