  • I was with you that day

    Charlie Boxler, you would call me froggy, we were side by side that day, you with a M-60 and me with a M-79 the sniper who shot you was a bus driver at the air base. I took his ID and gave it to the 2nd Louie. you were still alive when we put you in the basket but bleeding real bad with a head shot wound. I remember every day, I'll never forget. I often wonder why you and not me. we were shoulder to shoulder that day.

    I visited PVT Charles Boxler's gravesite today with my wife and children in remembrance of his sacrifice and all the others who have died in battle. My son read "On Flanders Fields" and my daughter placed flowers and lead the family in the St Michael's Prayer. We are thankful for the bravery of PVT Boxler and all the other Vietnam veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice.
    God Bless America.
    Sincerely,
    Colonel Frederick Hughes
    US Army

    Charlie, I remember you when your mother kept her horse at our barn in Delaware. You and my brother were crazy friends. You died in Vietnam when I was 18 years old, a senior in high school and I've always thought about your sacrifice. Today I found your name on the wall, 44 years later.

    Charlie was a friend of my sister's. He dated her friend, Lisa. I remember Charlie coming to our house. He was loud and adorable and big! Years later, I taught at Mt Pleasant High School and noticed a memorial plaque in the senior court yard dedicated to Charles Boxler. He graduated from MPHS and it moved me when I saw this memorial.
    I never stopped saying "Hi" to Charlie each time I walked through the courtyard! I now live in Windybush, how ironic.

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.
