Picture with Bill McCann

Dad was a Pastor of the Church that Bill McCann Attended. He was a devote Christian man. Bill had completed his tour in Vietnam, and then signed on for a second tour, and was KIA on that second tour. The details of where he was or how he died, are not known to me yet, but I'm researching it.

My memories of him are only a snapshot, taken of me when I was about 6 years old, standing in front of Bill in my parents home, with him seated on my parent's couch, and his arms around me. He had a peaceful smile on his face.

The other memory, as told by my father, was that Bill was part of a Church Baseball team, that Bill loved to play on.

To the best of recollection, Bill is buried in the cemetary next to the Wood River Baptist Church, in Grantsburg, Wisconsin.

If I can get a copy of the picture of Bill from my parents, I will post it.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT William George McCann, 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
