A Forgotten Soldier Deserves To Be Known

June 16, 2015 in Featured, WI VFW News


Terrence Sund, a Wisconsin soldier and tragic casualty in Vietnam is entombed in a closed room, forgotten and closed to visitors. This unique situation came to the attention of VFW State Historian Steve Conto, who has worked valiantly over the years to locate the final resting place of each Wisconsin casualty of the Vietnam War.

At the recent Wisconsin VFW State Convention, Conto reported on his progress to date, and then focused on the Terrence Sund project. The story follows below, and now it’s your turn to help. Steve is attempting to raise $5,000 necessary to bring about a proper burial of this otherwiseContoPic forgotten hero. He hopes to reach his funding goal by Labor Day, but with a little effort on

the part of our Posts, maybe we can hit that goal even sooner.

Read the story below, and then download the simple Terrence Sund Burial Fund poster and put it up and help publicize this special effort.

Terry was just 20 years old when he drowned in a Viet Cong tunnel in Vietnam on December 6, 1967. He was from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, high school class of ’65. Terrence’s remains were returned to Wisconsin in January of 1968 and interred in the north room of Wisconsin Memorial Park Cemetery in Brookfield and there he has been kept all these years. The north room is closed off from public viewing. The reason for Terry being placed there is unknown.

The final resting place of one of our heroes from Wisconsin was in a locked room, unable to be honored nor remembered. For over 47 years there has been no Flag by his grave. No family, friend or comrade has been able to visit and pay their respects: in a sense no closure or healing. In 2011 his mother passed and was placed in this north room also.

Recently I was able to contact his sister, Sue, after she left a remembrance for her brother Terry on the vvmf.org website. Through corresponding with Sue I was told the personal reason for Terry and his mother being placed in this back room. Sue then gave me permission to raise the necessary funds to have Terry and their mother’s cremains moved to a niche in the veterans section on the grounds of Wisconsin Memorial Park.

In turn, I have opened an account at Associated Bank. I’m seeking donations for Terrence and his mother to receive a proper burial. You can make your donation at any Associated Bank under the account – Terrence Sund Burial Fund. I want to finally bring Terrence completely home to be next to his mother and for him to receive a formal, military funeral ceremony that is long overdue.

With your help we can “Make it Right”

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

  12. ADRIAN DURHAM: The Chelsea players have been a disgrace this season. Maybe not every single one of them, but certain individuals have let themselves down, and let the fans down. Chelsea players are a disgrace! Thibaut Courtois is average, John Terry made the club look bad and Eden Hazard is a joke who looks like he should be at Chester
