You will always be remembered.

I named my son after you so I would always have you near.

You were a good friend and a great SeaBee.

You will always be in my thoughts and my heart. I miss you.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

The 1st Marine Division's Command Chronology for July 1968 reports a number of rocket attacks on the Danang complex on 23 and 24 July. Although the heaviest casualties occurred at the Force Logistics Command compound just northwest of Danang, the SeaBee compound was hit as well, with Petty Officer Helsley killed and two others wounded.


The point-of-contact for this memorial is
