Last week I was contacted by a representative from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund who was looking for information and especially a picture of Wilson native, Pvt. Walter Harris. Pvt. Harris was killed in 1966 by small arms fire during the Vietnam War. Luckily, I was able to find his obituary in the Wilson Daily Times, which included a photograph. Although the photo had a couple of smudges on it, I cleaned it up in Photoshop.
Pvt. Harris was a born in Nash County and graduated from Springfield High School in Wilson County and is now buried at Resthaven Cemetery in Wilson, NC
The photo and a bio of Pvt. Harris will be included in the Virtual Wall of Faces, joining another Wilson County soldier that I helped find information on, Marvin Bullock, who was killed in Vietnam in 1968.
