    Dear Spec 4 Domenico Cacciola,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. It bugs me that you died so close to your birthday. sigh. As another summer comes to an end, it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SP4 Domenico Cacciola, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • To the #1 Sfoch, from a Dilberts Vet

    Dom and I worked together in Dilbert's Supermarket in Brooklyn. He was one of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet. I remember him trading barbs with his cousin Tom and eating lunch with him at the diner next door. I was saddened to hear that he gave his life for his adopted country.

    I later served at Tan Son Nhut AB in 1970-71 and was fortunate that I I did not see combat. I visit DC often and always pay my respects to Dom when visiting "The Wall"

    RIP buddy

  • Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 65-10089

    Posted on 11/13/12 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org

    As the aircraft started out of the LZ, the pilot was given all clear. The aircraft started up and the skids caught on a cargo net. The aircraft started falling to the right and suddenly fell to the ground on the left side and rolled. A small fire was extinguished. One of the crewmen, SP4 William L. Dornbergh Jr., was killed in the crash. The three other crewmen survived. Tragically, six passengers also lost their lives in the wreck. They were 1LT Edward S. Fisher, PFC Charles D. Allen Jr., PFC Loren C. Surles, SP4 David R. Cushing, SP4 Domenico Cacciola, and SP4 Alan James Ruddell. [Taken from vhpa.org]

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.
