With Me Everyday

Dear Srgt. Williams,
I had the privilege of wearing your MIA bracelet. After all these years, I finally find out who you are, how you went missing, and what you look like. You sound like a fine young American and I’m so sorry your life was cut short. Thank you for your dedication and service to this country I dearly love. You are my hero.

We Went Together

It's nice to see these comments regarding Ed. We were drafted together from Clearwater in July 1970 and went through basic training together (he was in the bunk below me). During processing at the Reception Station at Ft Jackson, SC the Army made one last pitch to us draftees to sign up for an additional year beyond our two year hitch and go to Radio Relay School instead of (probably) Infantry School. Ed went for it (I didn't) which ultimately resulted in his assignment to a Signal unit in Vietnam. During Basic, it was obvious he'd be a fine soldier, which was recognized by the cadre, and he was made platoon leader for the last week or so of our training. Ed qualified as Expert with the M16, and the only time I saw him falter in his determination as a soldier was when he received a "Dear John" letter from his girlfriend. Even then, I think I was the only one who noticed, and within twelve hours he was back on track. I've often thought that when his helicopter was hit, he did not go quietly.

My POW/MIA Bracelet

I never met Edward W. Williams, but wore his name on my POW/MIA Bracelet until I got married in 1975, when my ex got jealous. But, I never forgot him. I kept him prayers and remembered his hometown. I still have the bracelet.
You will be remembered always.
Rest in Peace Edward.
God Bless.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SSGT Edward Wayne Williams, 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, for those who love you, and for the Sgt's son.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, died February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
