    Bill and I were both member of the Cox High School class of 1965. We were in a couple of classes together. What a great athlete he was along with being a model student. I do and will always remember him.

    Bill McFarland was my oldest brother's best friend. Our families were neighbors and friends. Nearly fifty years after the fact, we still reminisce about Bill and the effect he had on our lives. We always will.

    Visited with William and his comrades at "The Moving Wall" in Germantown WI yesterday. I served aboard the minesweeper USS Conflict MSO 426 as Engineering Officer. We were called upon to locate two downed helicopters in our patrol area and assist in the recovery operation. Although the operation was successful it was a sobering experience for the entire crew. I do have pictures of the recovery operations from our WESTPAC 1969 tour of duty if anyone has an interest.

    When I left Viet Nam, I sat next to Bill on the flight. He was going to take a 30 day leave then go back to Nam on an extension of service. We had both gone to Cox (Class of 65) and had a great time talking for the entire trip. I think of him often. Nothing but good things.

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.
