Classmates Remember Ecton
The Boonsboro High School Class of 1965
collected donations from our classmates
for a contribution to the VWVM
to honor our classmate Harry Ecton.
Harry was killed in action on January 31, 1968
during the TET Offensive.
An Honor Banner was also purchased in Harry’s name
to be displayed in Boonsboro.
Several classmates took the banner
to Homewood Retirement Village
to show it to Harry’s mother, Brigitte Ecton.
We also gave her a copy of the information
and the donation letter regarding the Monument
so she could see what is being built.
Mrs. Ecton appreciated that Harry’s classmates
chose to honor him in this way.
We are happy that she lived long enough
to see these honors
and recognition of her son’s sacrifice.
