What A GREAT Guy.
Harry was a gentle man.a nice guy. Whenever I was with him in the field he would share his tent, his humor and his time. He was the only man I knew who wrote so much and so often to his wife. It is obvious he loved her dearly. The world is worse off without Harry in it! He is missed by many. Monday, May 31, 1999

  A Tibute to the Life of My Friend-Harry Prince Posted for: HARRY GORDON PRINCE JR: Harry and I attended Auburn University, Auburn ,AL, and met and became good friends while in Army ROTC, where we both were members of the Auburn Rifle Team. The years were 1965-1969. We spent many hours practicing together as well as traveled together with our team to matches with other teams in the region. Harry was truly a good person. He was not full of the juvenile ways of many of us, everyone respected his leadership and was made a better person by having known Harry. Harry was a serious student and an obvious credit to his parents, who, it was evident, had raised a sincere contributor to society.

Following my graduation in December, 1969, I reported to Ft. Benning, GA, for the Infantry Officer's Basic Course in June, 1970, and was still stationed there, assigned to the Infantry School, when I read a notice in the local (Columbus, GA)newspaper about Harry's departure. At the time, Harry was the first person I personally knew who gave their life in Vietnam. Harry was a good person, soft spoken, respected, a leader, a dedicated true friend to those who would be his, certainly undeserving of his fate, and his death has troubled me ever since. I do know that he would, in battle, as otherwise in life, be respected by his peers and men under his command. I do not know if he left a wife, or children, having lost contact with him after I left Auburn. But, to them or others who knew Harry, that may come across these comments, I hope you find some comfort in my expression of gratitude for having known him. Posted by: Newton M. (Bud) Wright, III

Harry Gordon Prince, Jr.

Opelika, Alabama

I was contacted today by someone wanting to locate Lt. Prince's burial location.  He has a record on that indicates he is buried at Beulah Cemetery.  There should also be a link from that memorial to the cemetery which has a Map tab.  Thought someone else might want to know he is buried with his Father, Mother and an older brother who died as an infant.  Thank you to everyone who sees this for their service!
