Thank you, Brave Soldier

Major Dale R. Buis, thank you for your service and your sacrifice for our country. Those words seem so inadequate for the price you paid for our freedoms. May your sacrifice be remembered forever. Rest In Peace, Brave Soldier. Hooaah!

YOU ARE NUMBER ONE

You are the 1st name listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, 1-E. Unfortunately I never meet you or your family. I just wanted to thank you (and your family) for your service and sacrifice to our great Country. God bless you Sir. You are #1 in my book.

To you and your fellow Marine and college roommate

I had the pleasure of escorting fellow Marine and former college roommate Pete Hamlin to the Vietnam Memorial through the Honor Flight program. This was his first visit to the Wall. A dozen grade school students were visiting the Wall at the time. Pete shared stories about the two of you. It was an honor to meet Pete and hear about your WWII experiences and to know more about Maj Buis service and ultimate sacrifice during Vietnam.
God rest in peace,
HM2 Simpson

Thank You

Dear Major Dale Buis,
Thank you for your service as an Infantry Unit Commander. Your 96th birthday is at the end of the month. Happy Birthday. When I tell my students that our people were dying in Vietnam back in the 50s, they are stunned. I wish it were not so. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Uncle Dale, my dad's brother

Until today, I was unaware of the “Wall of Faces” and the written remembrances associated with the Viet Nam War Memorial. My first thought is to thank all of you who have shared either your memories of Dale or your words and poems of comfort. My family is grateful to each of you, to all who served with Dale, and to all Americans serving in the United States military. Without you, America would not be. Though Dale’s name was originally the first of more than 58,000 names , to us each name represents a first to family and friends. I would especially like to thank Master Sergeant Ray Bows, U.S. Army (ret.) for his tireless research and writing of his 2012 book First on the Wall in which he recounts the happenings surrounding July 8, 1959. I often remember Dale’s grin, the first time I met him, the stories he told, the day we learned of his death. I was only 12 at the time, but his influence on my life has been pervasive. Dale was 38 years old when he died. My nephew, Army Specialist James Vawter Buis, was 24 when he was killed Oct. 31, 1998, in a military convoy accident while stationed along the DMZ. Korea. It is with love, gratitude, respect and longing that Uncle Dale and James are “ a part of me forever.” We miss you. We love you. Your grins are with us always.
