Memorial Day, May 25, 2020

Dear SP4 Gary Clarence Smith, sir.

This year, as every year, our American Flag looks majestic as it snaps to attention in the breeze, as if to return the salute of all those who have served and who are serving. Two Red, White, and Blue Memorial Day wreats, one to the left and one to the right, remain there during this very special Memorial Day holiday.

Remembering you, those you served with who didn't make it home from the Vietnam War, and all who died defending this country.

With respect, sir.

Curt Carter

Ground Casualty

SP4 Gary C. Smith was a Construction Equipment Repairer serving with Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 116th Engineer Battalion. On October 10, 1968, SP4 Smith’s base camp in Lam Dong Province came under an enemy mortar attack. Smith was in the back of a five-ton truck during the attack when he was fatally wounded by fragments from an exploding mortar round. Camp Smith, located on Highway QL-20 in the Central Highlands of Lam Dong Province, was later named in his honor.

Memorial Day, May 27, 2019

Dear SP4 Gary Clarence Smith, sir.

As the American flag in our front yard flaps in the breeze, as my wife finishes the wreaths she makes for every Memorial Day, we have most of what we need to observe this Memorial Day. Yet, what we need most would be to have you and those whose names are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall with yours to be here as well. May we never forget the cost of our freedoms, and the men and women who have and continue to step forward to keep America safe.

With respect, sir.
