Thank You

Dear Sp4 Freddy Heugel, Thank you for your service as a Cannon Fire Direction Specialist. Yesterday was Memorial Day when we honor you. I could not post then because this site was overwhelmed. Please watch over the USA, it still needs your courage. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Freddy Paul Heugel, 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

MEET FREDDY PAUL HEUGEL

You have come to The Wall to look at all the names of people you don’t know – maybe to express your sorrow for the lives that were taken while defending someone else’s freedom.

I want you to know one of those names: Freddy Paul Heugel. His name is on panel 31W, line 36. His name is on the left because it was added after The Wall was originally erected. He died as a result of wounds he received in Vietnam.

He was born in West Virginia, was 6’1” tall, had blonde hair, blue eyes, a crooked smile, and wore glasses. He grew up in Michigan, which is where I met him. He was a gentle, caring, sentimental man and he had a great sense of humor.

He and I met on a blind date and fell deeply in love. We were inseparable. We spent every possible moment together. And when we weren’t together, we were talking on the phone.

We loved going to the movies, listening to music, and holding each other.

We were going to get married and have lots of children. We were going to be happy forever because we loved each other so much.

He was 19 years old when his number came up in the Draft. (He was on vacation in Cape Coral with me and my family when he got the news.) He was 20 years old when he was sent to Vietnam.

He came home from Vietnam with massive injuries just five months after he left. When he found out how bad it was, he refused to see me. I was devastated. With the help of my parents I went on with my life. I saw him a few times before marrying and moving to Florida.

He spent the rest of his life laying on his stomach on a stretcher, always in pain. He was angry, bitter, and depressed. He died about seven years ago.

My heart is full of memories of him and our time together. I loved him so very much and it still hurts when I think about what happened.

Coming to The Wall is a very emotional experience for me. While I grieve for the first man I ever loved, I celebrate the existence of this extraordinary monument.

Thank you for taking the time to visit The Wall.
