Thank You

Dear Sp4 Walter Palmer, I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces is missing yours. Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Lent, and the last day of winter. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

For his family

U.S. Army Specialist 4 Walter C. Palmer was born in Dillon SC on August 4, 1948. He attended (but did not graduate from) Gordon High School...probably some time between about 1963 and 1968. He died in Vietnam on May 17, 1969, and is buried at Ebenezer Cemetery, Marlboro County SC.

He is remembered at The Wall in Washington DC on Panel 24W - Line 34, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial 'Wall of Faces' online at
.

His parents - James F. Palmer, of Dillon, and Ethel Palmer, of Brooklyn NY - as well as his brother, James Willie Palmer, and his sister Mary McRae, are all deceased.

The all-volunteer photo project of The Wall of Faces is nearly complete, but 89 men are still not memorialized by an image. We are hoping that friends and former classmates might be able to locate at least one photo of SP4 Palmer. Whoever wrote the following article that ran in 2018 may have known the Palmer family, and we'd appreciate any and all help with the search.

From a friend

I was the fire team leader and Walter was a friend of mine. I was with Walter when he tripped a booby trapped 60mm mortar round. We were in dense jungle growth at the time, and it took about 45 minutes to back track to a less dense place to chopper him out, possibly contributing to his death. Walter was an inspiration to us all, and was greatly missed.
