Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Wilfredo Ayala-Reyes, 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

Final Mission of SGT Wilfredo Ayala-Reyes

The following is a personal account for the incident on June 17, 1969 in which SGT Ayala was killed: I was serving under Wilfredo the morning he was KIA. Charlie Company had combat assaulted out of LZ Penny for the last time. We had been sweeping, and were now set up in a temporary base out in the jungle flat. Two squads of the third platoon left the base camp early that morning after chow. We were sent out to set up an overnight ambush. We had just crossed a trail, it was mid-morning, and close to our set up location. We either walked up on some NVA or they were lying in wait for us. They sprayed us with automatic weapons fire. Many of the rounds hit Wilfredo and he was killed instantly. He was friendly towards all who knew him. Always pleasant to be around. He and I had joked around about Friday 13th, as we dug a foxhole together on that date. We also talked about going on R&R. (Narrative by Charles Neal Rea, C Co. 2/35th) [Taken from 6thofthe31st.com]
