1LT Jeffrey Andrew Hults, Vietnam Veteran, Native of Fayettteville, NC.

First Lieutenant Jeffrey Andrew Hults was a casualty of the Vietnam War. As a member of the Army Reserve, 1LT Hults served our country until February 12th, 1968 in Hua Nghia, South Vietnam. He was 22 years old and was not married. It was reported that Jeffrey died from artillery fire. His body was recovered. Jeffrey was born on March 24th, 1945 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. 1LT Hults is on panel 39E, line 006 of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. He served our country for 2 years.

We were in OCS together at Ft. Knox. Always smiling, always fun, we raced thru the streets in our sportscars. Hound and Hair. He always talked about his sister, they were very close. Her brother was my friend. I've missed you old friend. Tom Hoover.

Why is it people have to die, And leave behind all those who cry? Is there a reason, I'd like to know, For if there is please tell me so. My brother died, was it in vain? Had the world just totally gone insane? I feel there really was no need, For all those men to die and bleed. Could we have not discussed the plight, Of those two factions so uptight? It appears to me we didn't really try. Were our egos inflated much too high? In the end, everything was lost. Did anyone think of the devastating cost? I would wish that those who really care, Make themselves completely aware That democracy is not a whim.. The alternatives are much too grim. I hope, as a nation, we never allow Another Vietnam...no way, no how. Does anybody really know what happened then? I only pray our government doesn't let it happen again. And hopefully, as we recollect back, We in the U.S. can get back on track. The right track being the reflection of:
T he Declaration of Independence
R evolutionary War
A mendments
C onstitution of the U.S.
K INDNESS to all mankind ABOVE ALL!, Life is too short. Cherish each and every day you spend with your loved ones. I only wish I could go back in time and spend time with my brother. Jennifer Blevins, He is my brother.

He served with Alpha Company, 2nd Battalion, 34th Armored Regiment, 25th Infantry Division,"Tropic Lightning", USARV.

He was awarded The Bronze Star Medal, The Purple Heart Medal for his combat related wounds, The Vietnam Service Medal, The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Service Medal, The National Defense Service Medal.
