    We stopped to pay our respects to Major White and his family last month, when our nephew graduated. I wore his POW/MIA bracelet until last year. I wish I could of been there to honor him home. Peace be with you Edward Barton. God Bless Major Whites family and friends.

    Today I had the great honor of attending the funeral service for Maj. Jim White, (at West Point Military Academy) whom I met at Webb AFB, Texas. Jim was a bright spot in my life and his loss was very difficult. Today I got to stand with his wife Sharon and his daughter Catherine as a grateful nation welcomed him home.

    I knew Jim from our time together at Takhli, RTAFB, Thailand. I was TDY to SEA flying the KC-135 tanker air refueling Jim and his fellow F-105 pilots on their way to North Vietnam, Laos and other locations. I first met then Capt. White at the officer’s club. The end result was that he flew with us on the KC to see the other side of refueling F-105’s. It has been a lifetime coming, Welcome Home Brother.

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.
