  • Walt-----never to be forgotten

    Posted on 5/29/17 - by Roy Smalley
    Walt and I were bunkmates at Quantico beginning February 1963. Our remaining platoon of some 20 odd guys were all stunned at Walt leaving us. We were used to that, but not Walt; he was absolutely one of the best and to this day don't understand why. After OCS I was stationed at Quantico and ran into Walt, then a PFC. We talked and he told me he was getting back in,unheard of in that day. He knew what was coming in the SE yet he volunteered....twice. Caputo mentioned his "enigmatic" smile as I did when writing about Walt to my wife in 1963. A great man with unlimited potential given for God and Country.

    I have read the book many times. I have also given the book to my son and other young men of draft age and to several combat veterans. Capt. Levy is memorialized in the book and the section pertaining to Capt. Levy is very searing and poignant; unforgettable.

    I read about this remarkable young Marine officer that was killed not long after he arrived in country in Philip Caputo's "A Rumor of War". He died trying to retrieve the body of a corpsman. It was something about Caputo's description of this man and how he carried himself that touched me to want to know more about him. We lost so many others like Walter over there as well.

    Dear 2LT Walter Neville Levy, 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
