Burrillville High School Remembers

Dear Pvt. Wilbert I. Andrews,
You were only 19 years old when you went to Vietnam. You had to leave your family and friends behind to fight for your country. If I was in your position I don’t know if I could have gone. I would have been scared in battle but you, you fought bravely in the Marines and unfortunately you died on May 3, 1966 in battle. You did not die in vain, it was for your country, your family, and for future generations such as myself,so that we do not repeat the past. I am writing this to you so that you know you will not be forgotten, even though I did not know you your story has left an impact that will last forever. Your story has also brought the reality of war to our little state of Rhode Island. I had to research this for a project in my history class and I’m glad I did I have learnt a lot.
Thank you,
Katie C.

May your Soul Rest In Peace, With Dignity & Honor.

I know I don't know who he was ,or much about him, but may he rest in peace with the dignity and honor that he deserves, and earned. He was young and had a heart for the helpless, and with that heart he went to war. He did all he could, and more by dying for his country. He had a whole life ahead of him which he could have started, but he was brave and sacrificed it for the people he cared about and the others around him. Even if he was drafted(which,I'm not sure if he was)he could've chose to stay and face the consequences. But he didn't,he was brave and strong. He may have been a afraid but had to be brave and strong. My heart goes out to him,and all other veterans. May he rest in peace with his dignity,and honor.

I salute you

I salute you
This is for you
My courageous neighbor
You had so much to see
and so much to learn
Yet you chose to serve your country
and liberate the unfortunate
being oppressed by communism
So to you PVT Wilbert Andrews
I salute you
you fought well
But finished young
and still made your family
Rhode Island
and your country
proud that your heart and soul
were into the very meaning of the United States
Freedom
