  • Letter I received

    Posted on 2/23/17 - by Janna Hoehn
    Iam a volunteer collecting photos for the Wall of Faces project. I received this letter about Johnny Bouington and wanted to share. Photo she attached was the same photo posted in the yearbook from their high school.

    Attached is a photo of PFC Johnny W. Bouington. He died in Vietnam on November 25,1965 near Da Nang. That was Thanksgiving night of that year.

    I didn’t know him very well, but he was the first member of our High School (John McDonogh Senior High in New Orleans) to die in the service of his country.

    His mom was a widow, and he was her only child, so I do not know if there is anyone left to send his picture. I just want to be sure that he is remembered. The photo is just a scan of the memorial in our yearbook and the quality is not the best, but at least it is something.

    Several months after his death, His mother came to donate the flag that was on his coffin to our High School. We all assembled in the gymnasium for the presentation ceremony. It was a cloudy day all day. But when his mom give us the flag, the sun broke out for about one minute, brightened up the gym, and then went back behind the clouds. It was a very powerful moment.

    I found his name on the wall in Washington a while back and did a rubbing. He was born on 5/3/1947. He is on the wall at panel 3–E and is line number 113.

    Hope this helps you in completing your very thoughtful and kind task of getting a picture of everyone who served.

    God bless you for your time and energy devoted to this project.

    Sincerely,
    Kathy Anzelmo

    Dear PFC Johnny William Bouington, 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
