From those of us who were there, rest in peace Henry. Today is the 33rd year since you passed, I think of you every day and am sure the others do too. Our time together was short, but the friendship remains in my heart and always will. Someday we will be together again as all Eagles soar. God be with you friend. Richard

"H. Joseph," as he was nicknamed, had written home from Vietnam shortly before his death that, if anything should happen to him, he would go without regrets because he believed in what he was doing. The Army paratrooper followed three generations of Wilhelmi's into the armed forces: his father had retired in 1962 after 30 years in the Navy his grandfather was a 30-year Navy veteran, and his great-grandfather spent 30 years in the Army. Young Wilhelmi also planned to make the Army a career. The 20-year-old sergeant was a grenadier with Company B of the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. He was killed near Duc Pho, Quang Ngai Province, on June 10, 1967, after carrying two wounded men to safety and returning for a third. He was postumously awarded the Silver Star. The 1965 Cardinal Dougherty High School graduate was survived by his parents, two brothers and four sisters. Wilhelmi lived on N. 4th Street in the Olney section of Philadelphia.
