Julius C Faircloth


7 Apr 2005

Although his name is listed on The Virtual Wall as Julius Clyde Faircloth, everyone knew him as Buddy. He was born in Lumberton, NC and enlisted in the Army in Sedalia, Missouri. Buddy was a medic, something he wanted to be since he was a kid. As a child he tried to glue the legs back on to a daddy longleg spider. He had a great sense of humor, laughed a lot and loved his family deeply. Not only was he a good son and brother but a great husband and father.

I watched him fly out of Virgina to start his duty in Vietnam in late August 1968. We had planned to meet in Hawaii the following February. Buddy was killed in action 1 month and 12 days after arriving there. He died the day before our son's first birthday.

Many years have gone by since that day. Our son is will be 38 years old this October. But the impact that Buddy had on so many people lives on. For those that served with him, thank you. For those who miss him, we miss him too. For those who never got a chance to meet him, you missed an opportunity of a lifetime.

Always his wife,

Pepper Faircloth
