  • With Honor, I Carry Your Name

    My name is Jeffrey ANDRUS Olivier. My father, Joseph Olivier, Jr., was best friends with Andrus since they were 4 months old , they grew up together, and they enlisted together...they planned on returning home together but sometimes God has plans of his own that we can't grasp when he sets them in motion. On January 13, 1970 Andrus James Blanchard lost his life defending his country and fellow man but gained God's grace as a gift for his efforts. And so he would never be forgotten, Joseph Olivier named his firstborn son Jeffrey Andrus Olivier. There has been no greater honor in this lifetime, than to carry the name of this hero through life. I will return it to Andrus on the day we finally meet in God's loving embrace.

    Andy I will never forget the night we were digging a fox hole and things started to go crazy. Bullets were flying all over the place. We were right next to each other in that hole, If only we could have that day over again, things could be different.
    Andy I think of you always and will never forget our times together.
    Thanks for being a close buddy in that far off land.

    If there is anyone out there that can tell me anything else about Andy Please do.

    Dear SP4 Andrus James Blanchard, 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.
