Walter is still remembered.

While on a trip to Omaha my cousin gave me a metal bracelet with your name. It seemed an odd gift, a bracelet she'd had for over fifteen years. I'm wearing it now. As a VN vet myself I can relate the loss of someone I never met. Walter I'm sorry you didn't make it back, but you are still remembered.

GENERAL ORDERS:

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross (Posthumously) to Lieutenant Commander Walter Sutton Wood (NSN: 0-610279), United States Navy, for heroism and extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight as a pilot of a jet fighter aircraft on 1 May 1966. As Section Leader of four aircraft attacking the Yen Dung storage site, he maneuvered his section to the best attack heading and pressed home the attack in the face of intense enemy fire. The attack resulted in the destruction of three large warehouses, severe damage to seven others and large secondary fires. Lieutenant Commander Wood's precise weapons delivery and exceptional courage throughout this attack were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
