He was an excellent leader. I met SFC Wade while I was a trainee in basic service at Ft Bliss Texas. He was our Field First for my training company. I always admired his dedication to his job and the US Army. He inspired me to continue my career in the Army and also service in Vietnam. Thank you Sgt Wade. CSM (Ret) E.A. Hertzing. e9csm@yahoo.com

When I was stationed at Ft Bliss, SSG Wade was one of our instructors. We were all shocked and saddened by his death. Theo Smoke, Comrade, 1026 Lyman Road, Quincy, Mi, 98082.

Hello SFC Lindberg Wade, I met your son and he had your picture with him. He honors all you have done for your family and our country. Your son is a remarkable Officer and he carries your name with the up most. Thanks for your selfless service.

I talked to your son, LTC Steven Wade today and I thought of you, dear one! I remember hearing you say to me, "how are you Chicken?" That was your pet name for your little cousin. What a wonderful spirit you were, Lindberg. You shall NEVER be forgotten. MJ Hicks, marilynh@us.ibm.com.

We served together. Thank you for your kindness Sgt Wade. You are never going to be forgotten. You were a tall man and still are. GOD Bless you. Ronald Ocie Young.

For many years I've had the nightmares of reliving his death. Always wondering did it really happen. After 31 years I can say its real my friend is gone. GOD BLESS HIM he was one of the best. I never found his name on any list anywhere. Please help me in insuring that he receives the recognition he deserves. If he has been recognized already, please excuse my ignorance. Ron Young.
