    Dear SP4 Wayne Douglas Clements, 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

  • Army Probes Killing of N.J. GI in Vietnam

    The Army is investigating the "accidental shooting" death of a 20-year-old Camden soldier, one of 10,000 Vietnam veterans rushed back to the war zone two weeks ago.
    Sp/4 Wayne D. Clements, of 1329 Browning st., was reported killed last week. He had served a year in Vietnam, and had been sent home because of malaria and an injured back.
    His mother, Mrs. Gloria Clements received a telegram Saturday from the Defense Department, stating only that the soldier had been killed. A day or so later an Army officer came to the house, but could only add that the death was by "accidental shooting" and an investigation was under way.
    Sp/4 Clements, a paratrooper, attended Camden County Vocational School in Pennsauken. He left school in June, 1965, to enlist in the Army. In October, 1965, he was sent to Vietnam, and returned in October, 1966.
    On February 15, a family spokesman said, Sp/4 Clements called from Fort Bragg, N.C., saying he was ordered back to Vietnam. He had been due for discharge in June.
    He is also survived by two brothers, Ernest, Jr., 25, and Franklin J., 21; and a sister, Donna Marie, 12.

    Photo and article appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer on February 28, 1968.
