  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SSGT Bay Benton Boothe, 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

    Bay was born in Kansas and moved to PA.

    He was a great baseball player and was loved by everyone who knew him.

    Not a day goes by that he is not remembered by someone who loved him.

    When I arrived in Afghanistan on August 15, I couldn't help but think of what happened to you on that date in 1968. Every day I think of you and things we might have done, but my pride and respect for you and what you did in Vietnam grows stronger. I went to the 199th LIB reunion a couple times and have to say that they are one of the best groups of people that I have met in my entire life. They treated me better than gold and I wish them nothing but the best in the future. I will soon be heading home, my tour here complete, but I am more proud of what you did and what you gave than any military accomplishment I could ever achieve. Thank you for being my dad.

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.

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
