I found this page by accident while researching Admiral Chester Nimitz. Divine intervention would dictate that this is what the Admiral would have wanted...

They went to faraway Vietnam that our homes would always be safe. Their sacrifice in that place gave pause to the gathering communist cold war storm. Because they fought and saw through a difficult and enormously thankless assignment, we stayed free!

There is no way of expressing a thank you that could suffice. So, simply to say, that I will live my life to the fullest of potential as a free American and pray that he rests fulfilled.

Nothing can ever replace the older brother in my life! He is so loved and so missed ... never forgotten. Please God he has found peace and that his death, and all the others who lost their lives in Vietnam, was not in vain.

As my Commanding Officer on the USS KENNETH M. WILLETT (DE-354) from August 1957 to decommissioning of the WILLETT in February 1959, then-LCDR Fay was an outstanding CO who looked after his men. He was tough but he was fair. I will always remember him.
