Ground Casualty
PFC William E. Ailes was an artilleryman serving with A Battery, 1st Battalion, 11th Artillery, 9th Infantry Division. On December 8, 1967, PFC Ailes died in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. An article from the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette (Lancaster, OH) on December 11, 1967, reported the death as the result of a fall on a “foreign object” while at his base camp. However, the Army coded his casualty an intentional homicide. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org; article courtesy of the Fairfield County District Library, Lancaster, OH]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC William Eugene Ailes, 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
