Pete Fletcher

The photo of Pete shaking hands with Floyd Patterson was taken in 1967 by me. Pete was a Corporal in the US Marines, assigned to B Battery, 2nd LAAM Battalion, 1st Marine Air Wing. Pete went to school at USAADS, Fort Bliss (the Marines don't have such a school), Texas, and learned to service the HAWK guided missile, using it's Test Shop, and it's launcher, using test equipement. 

Floyd Patterson was the only 'guest' I remember visiting us. We did go to Bob Hope's Christmas show in 1967, with members of B Battery, and I hope Pete was there.

My daughter's high school class took a trip to Washington, DC, and she made a rubbing of Pete's name on the Vietnam Memorial. I still have it.

 

Thank you Cpl.for your service to this great nation and to our Corps.

THE WALL Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives
"War drew us from our homeland In the sunlit springtime of our youth. Those who did not come back alive remain in perpetual springtime -- forever young -- And a part of them is with us always." --- Author Unknown --- God Bless  You
