    Dear ENS Harry John Belknap, 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

  • Final Mission of ENS Harry J. Belknap

    Posted on 2/6/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On June 23, 1966, a U.S. Nany F-4B Phantom II (#152324), call sign Switchbox 114 from Fighter Squadron 151 (VF-151) assigned to the USS Constellation was involved in non-combat mishap that resulted in a crash at sea and the loss of its two crewmen. During a carrier controlled night approach, the aircraft impacted the water approximately 10 miles from the carrier having lost its altitude directional indicator, standby gyro, and radar gyro. No ejections were observed and search and rescue failed to locate the aircrew. The lost crew were LTJG Lawrence F. Nyman and ENS Harry J. Belknap. [Taken from ejection-history.org.uk]

    You and I John . . . through fear and insanity we survived. Then we were separated by flight school and Nam. You didn't come back, Johnny, but for some reason I did. I love you and will always remember you and your old Dodge station wagon.

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.
