    For those who do not remember, Kenny was a paratrooper. He visited us all one day at Ventura College in uniform before shipping out and was most proud of his jump wings. One paratrooper to another, rest in peace, all the way.

    As Terry said below, Kenny played left guard. I also played left guard, behind Kenny. He was smaller than me, but way tougher. I was in-country at the same time, with the USMC, but in another province. In terms of numbers of young men lost, 1968 was the worst for our home town. Ken was fun, honest, and a good person and, except for war, could have married and had a family. There are too many young people dying in our wars.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Kenneth Dale Combs, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
