    Dear CPL John Richard W Constien, 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

    John, it's getting cold here & getting close to Thanksgiving. Brings thoughts from this time of year, at the farm. You were so smooth pulling off all that made your eyes twinkle. ;-) You served at the pleasure of the President. So much honor, intelligence, integrity. You were part of a very elite profession; that affords all of us the rights we enjoy. Even so, it was a huge unfair lost. You had so much more to offer this world. God spared you from any more earthy life. I'll never understand why. I've quit asking. Now you proudly guard the gates of heaven. Not so much longer before I'll see you there. Life has been lonely without you. You were an excellent Marine. You are irreplaceable by my side. I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER, LOVE, & HONOR THE GREAT MAN YOU WERE. Semper Fi

    John, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your sacrifice to your country. You were swept off of this Earth even before the age of twenty, all because you were committed to the American Dream. God Bless.

    John, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we enjoy today.

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 www.buildthecenter.org.
