10th Anniversary Commemoration of Arlington Honors for Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. & Ouida Fay Wright


In Memory of Joe N. Wright & Brenda Wright


The Purpose is to commemorate the 10 Anniversary of the Reburial of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. after 50 years of being buried in a segregated cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida.  The “Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor” commemoration is more than just a family recognition as the Wright family gives a glimpse of the suffering of millions of U.S. families that have sacrificed for freedom over and over again in U.S. history.  To honor one is to respect all as in the case of John Francis Shea of Willimantic, Connecticut, who died in the helicopter crash with Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. on March 9, 1964, serving the United States of America as Honor Guards for then Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara.
