REMEMBRANCES

  • Thanks for your cover Smitty!

    It hurts as much today as it hurt me the day you were KIA. The tears in my eyes for you are mostly gone now, but the tears in my heart are ever there.

    If anyone has a picture of Smitty, I would love to have a copy.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/29/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear CPL Alfred James Smith, 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

    On August 30, 1967 CPL Alfred J. Smith was the gunner on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 66-16222 when the aircraft came under enemy fire during an ammo resupply and dustoff (casualty evacuation)of wounded soldiers. The aircraft received over 40 hits (possibly as many as 80) from hostile small-arms fire. CPL Smith received fatal wounds during this barrage. His three fellow crewmen survived.

    Smitty and my dad were friends and served together. My father survived; Smitty did not. I know he was missed by 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. 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.
