  • Final Mission of CWO Arthur E. McLeod

    Posted on 10/19/14 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On February 12, 1971, CWO Arthur E. McLeod was the pilot and CAPT Clyde D. Wilkinson the aircraft commander of an AH-1G helicopter flying an armed reconnaissance mission west of Quang Tri, South Vietnam. During an attack on a target, McLeod's aircraft was hit by enemy ground fire. He radioed that the engine oil bypass caution light was on, and that he would attempt to return to Khe Sanh. On the return attempt, the aircraft began to smoke and burn, and the crew attempted to land the aircraft. Just prior to touchdown, the aircraft exploded and crashed, followed by intense fire and ammunition detonation. After the aircraft had cooled, several passes were made overhead, but no survivors were detected. The aircraft had been almost completely consumed by the intense fire and explosions. Search continued by air, but no sign of the crew was ever found. Enemy presence prohibited ground search. [Narrative taken from pownetwork.org; image from wikipedia.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/26/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear CWO Arthur Edward McLeod, 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.
