Photo remembrance of Don Carter Baker
Photo is Don’s Waubun High School Senior Picture and was provided by his friend, Terry Teiken. Terry, also a Vietnam Veteran, went on to become a career high school teacher and had the special privilege of having Don’s niece and nephew in his classes. Thank you Terry! You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Don.

Don was one, of four, from my home, area, who made the ultimate sacrifice, during the Vietnam, War. The others, were David Stiyer, Errol Kent, along with Don, from Ogema and Bob Rassel, from Waubun. Don was the first person, I knew who, died, in Vietnam. I remember, hearing the news just days, before high school, graduation, in 1966. After my own, tour, of duty, in Vietnam, I went on to become, a career, high school, teacher. As a reminder, to myself and others, I created a tribute wall, in the corner, of my classroom, dedicated, to Don, Bob, David and Errol. I created it, as a reminder, as to how, lucky and blessed, I was, to survive, the Vietnam experience and to go, on and have, a successful, teaching career. My wall included, "rubbings," from both the National and Minnesota, Vietnam Memorials, as well, as from the Moving Wall, when it was, in our area. In addition, I added to it information, I would find about them, on the Internet. Over the years, many, many students would ask me, who these, people were, how I knew, them and what, they were like? My answer, was always: “Four, of the finest people, God ever placed, on this earth!” As a teacher, I was, very privileged, to have, Don’s niece and nephew, in my classes. That will, always be, very special, to me! Time eases, the pain, memories, come and go, but the loss, is forever. Don, Bob, David and Errol - you, are not forgotten.

You, Sir, Have Not, Been Forgotten! href="">

I had, the opportunity to visit, The Vietnam Memorial Wall. I was so overwhelmed, with sorrow and pain, that I could not hold, back the tears, for those heroes and their families, who lost so much. Though my visit, to the Wall, was a few years ago, I feel, that I left a piece, of my heart there. To honor those, who died, in the Vietnam, War and to say thank you, I created a small tribute, to those heroes. Please click, on the link above, to view, my website.
