Thank you for your sacrifice

Right shortly after I joined the military there was a vendor with the MIA/ POW bracelets I picked one up and put it on said this is the one. It was Billy I wore that bracelet till it broken several years later the day it broke I was looking for a copy of it found a place that made them and had them do Billy's name. Finished 21 years in the military with him on my arm. Then I gave it to my son to wear thank you for your ultimate sacrifice that you made for our country

2016 MEMORIAL DAY - BILLY DAVID HILL - SERGEANT FIRST CLASS - UNITED STATES ARMY



2016 MEMORIAL DAY

BILLY DAVID HILL

SERGEANT FIRST CLASS

UNITED STATES ARMY


WASHINGTON, D.C --

On Monday 30 May 2016 at 1 p.m., the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) and the National Park Service (NPS) hosted the annual Memorial Day Observance at The Wall, during which changes to The Wall will be commemorated and all members of America's armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice will be honored. This yearly event is always free and open to the public.

Captain Dale A. Dye, USMC (Ret.), a decorated Vietnam veteran, delivered the keynote remarks.

Dye is an American actor, technical advisor, radio personality and writer.

His company, Warriors Inc., is the top technical advisor to Hollywood with work on Forrest Gump, Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, Tigerland, The Thin Red Line, and HBO's Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

The emcee for the ceremony was Major General Mike Nardotti, USA (Ret.), a decorated combat veteran, who served more than 28 years on active duty as a soldier and a lawyer.

Nardotti currently serves on the Board of Directors for VVMF.

The 2016 Memorial Day Observance at The Wall is generously sponsored by the Xerox Foundation, J.P. Morgan Chase & Company, and TriWest Healthcare Alliance.

Each spring, VVMF works with the Department of Defense to make sure The Wall is accurate.

Names are then added for those service members who have met the Department of Defense criteria for addition to The Wall, having sustained wounds in Vietnam from which they eventually perished. Those service members who in the last year were returned or accounted for will have their statuses changed from MIA to KIA.

The names of eight American service members were engraved on the black granite walls of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial over the first week of May, and the status designations were changed for nine others whose names are already on The Wall.

These changes will bring the total number of names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to 58,315 men and women who were killed or who remain missing in action.

When names are added, the highly technical procedure requires meticulous work to match the stroke and depth of the surrounding names to within 1/1,000 of an inch.

The physical work of adding the names and changing designations will be performed by James Lee of the Colorado-based company, Engrave Write.

The Department of Defense sets the criteria for and makes decisions about whose names are eligible for inscription on The Wall while the VVMF pays for the name additions and status changes, and works with the National Park Service to ensure long-term preservation and maintenance of The Wall.

These eight service members will join 58,307 others who lost their lives or remain missing in action as a result of combat in Vietnam:
