    I know nothing about you besides what is here on this page (we have the same birthday, by the way). However, since I stopped by I wanted to leave something behind to remark on my recognition of you and your service in the war.

    Your picture is what made you stand out from many others. I couldn't resist clicking on your quirky face.

    Thank you for your service, and I hope that you are happy where you are.

  • Final Mission of SP4 Harvey R. Howard

    Posted on 8/5/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    At 2300 hours on October 16, 1967, a bucket loader from the 137th Engineering Company was returning from a job site to base camp in a convoy on Highway QL-11 with other construction vehicles when it was hit by a Claymore mine approximately 7 miles southeast of Duc Pho in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. The bucket loader was destroyed in the blast and its two occupants, SP4 Harvey R. Howard and PFC Wayland K. Thompson, were fatally injured. Their remains were brought to the D Company, 137th Engineering Company command post where they were held overnight. A medivac helicopter from the 174th Aviation Company arrived at 0655 hours the next morning to retrieve the bodies. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/11/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Harvey Rickert Howard, 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

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
