A Veteran Remembered, I believe this young man corresponded with my mother during the Vietnam War. I was 12 years old and I know it meant a lot to Mom that they wrote. He stopped writing, but I don't know when. She never heard from him again and I always wondered if he made it or not. May God bless his family. Jo-Ellen Darling.

He is my first cousin but was more like a big brother. He was raised on a farm in Johnston County, North Carolina. Graduated from High School in Wilson Mills, then went straight into the Army. He was sent home from Viet Nam in a box with a closed casket funeral. I will never forget our youth, working tobacco fields and rabbit hunting. He is still in my heart daily.

He was the son of Mr Burlon Braxton Honeycutt and Mrs Helen Elizabeth Barbour Honeycutt, Route #1, Box 459, Clayton, NC.

He served with Bravo Company, 4th Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 199th Infantry Brigade, USARV.
