  • 35th Anniversary of The Wall

    Posted on 2/10/18 - by Janel Pearce Manning
    I had the privilege of participating in Reading of the Names for the 35th Anniversary of The Wall; and the honor of reading Charles' name along with others lost on Feb. 3, 1970. Charles and I met and became friends before I left Gulfport, heading to Iceland in 1968. We kept in touch until his death. My aunt sent me a copy of the obituary from the local newspaper.
  • Thank You

    Dear PFC Charles Henry Wright, 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

    Charles was my sister's boyfriend. I was in jr. high and he
    was my adopted big brother. I promised him if he died and
    life went on, I would never forget him. I visit his grave
    as often as the 350 mile trip allows and hope one day to
    honor his bravery with a trip to the wall. I love you Charles.
