Fletcher Remembered To This Day.

Fletcher was in my unit, 25th Infantry Division, stationed at Cu Chi, 25 miles from Saigon, and had the same job title as me, Interrogation, Prisoners Of War, Military Intelligence. He was my best friend in Vietnam and I was devastated when he was killed. I was asked to view his remains to confirm his ID when he was killed. He died in the field from the detonation of a booby trap while he was on a mission taking a POW, along with a platoon of men, looking for a cache of weapons. This is something often, looking for hidden weapons after interrogating a Vietcong prisoner.

Fletcher was very funny and talented individual. He was artistic and drew cartoons of different situations in our company giving comic relief to us all.

He was drafted, did not want to serve voluntarily, but came from a military family. I believe his father was a lifer and a Colonel at the time of his death. He lived in San Francisco and I lived in San Jose, so we planned on continuing our friendship after serving our tour. I think of him often but especially every year on Veterans and Memorial Day.

Fun Man

We had some fun times in Heidelberg in high school. Wilson was a funny and artistic guy. One of his favorite sayings was "C'est la vie". You are not forgotten.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Fletcher W BolesII, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
