My father Herbert Alanson Frye was born on 10-14-40. He was killed serving his country during the Vietnam War aboard the USS Forrestal on July 29, 1967. I was only six months old at the time of his death so I never had the honor of knowing him. I’m sure he was a great man. From what I understand he liked fast cars and the military. He joined the Navy on July 22, 1959 and was on active duty until his death. My name is Willie Frye and I am proud to be his son. His parents were Willie and Carrie Frye. He had five brothers, Edward C. Frye, Fred Frye, Charles “Bud” Frye, Curtis Frye, and Paul Frye. One sister Melbel Frye Sword. He grew up in Saltville Va. I wish I could have knew him, but I’m sure we will be reunited in heaven someday. I love you Dad.
