I'm proud of our Vietnam Veterans
101st Airborne, 327th Infantry Regiment
I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces needs yours. Thank you for your service as an Airborne Qualified Infantryman. Happy New Year. It has been too long, and it's about time 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 strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.
Recovery & Rememberance
During all the turmoil of battle and the need to quickly learn how to be a combat leader, it didn't occur to me to learn your name. That was for the GR folks and administrators in the rear. I have regretted that for 50 year.
Two weeks ago I attended the dedication of the memorial to the 327th KIAs of Vietnam at Ft Campbell. At a gathering of fellow ABU veterans, I finally learned your name. I proud to have helped return you to your loved ones.

Remembering an American Hero
Dear PFC Earl Wayne Goodall, 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
