We Were Friends in Louisville, KY

I spent two tours in Vietnam, 06Jun1966 - 27Jan1968, I was back in the States but it was no a place for me to be at that time. I requested assignment to Embassy Duty, a two-year tour, so it was nearly 4 years before I head that you'd been killed in action near Gio Linh. You and ten other Marines and one Priest are rattling around in my brain, I carry all of you in my memory----Semper Fi

Parris Island 1966

We were rackmates in Platoon 151 at Parris Island, March of 1966. When the Drill Instructors were teaching us to stand at attention and all the marching stuff, I couldn't believe how tall and thin you were. We weren't allowed to "eyeball" the area or talk to any one but when we stood at the end of our racks you were taller than the rack. You were the skinniest Marine that I remember, but you stood so tall and so straight. In Vietnam, our Company, KLO 3/9, was preparing to move out when I saw one of our guys had the "Stars and Stripes" newspaper that listed the previous weeks names of casualties. I had yet seen any major battles, only small skirmishes that only lasted a few minutes. When I saw your name I was sad, shocked, and sad. Semper Fi my Fellow Marine.

I Heard All the Old Stories

I never knew Victor, but I grew up hearing all the stories my Mom told of the two of them growing up together. She loved to say how my older brother was Victor coming back to give her hell. David always gave her a run for her money. With His birthday just passing I know she is thinking of him a lot. We haven't forgotten his sacrifice, or his family's. Semper Fi Victor.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Victor Harold Vanvactor, 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
