    As a young teen in the late 70s, I wore a bracelet with your name on it. Every night I would pray for you in hopes that you were safe and would be found. With no internet, I had no idea what you looked like or where you were from. I prayed for your family knowing how horrible they must have felt waiting for you.
    Last month I watched the Ken Burns series on Vietnam. As I was born in 1956, the war was something we saw on the evening news. As a mature woman with 3 adult sons, I cannot imagine what so many of our fellow Americans lives were forever changed during over those years
    Please know that I still have your bracelet in my jewelry drawer. I still think about your sacrifice and am forever thankful for what you did. RIP Captain Cozart.
    And note you were more handsome than a 16 year old girl from the Midwest could have dreamed.

    Dear Major Robert Cozart,
    Thank you for your service as a Field Artillery Unit Commander (Pilot.) I am glad you were identified in 1989. Welcome Home. Your birthday is soon, happy birthday. Happy Valentine's Day. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Like a number of others, I wore Capt. Cozart's POW/MIA bracelet for a couple of years. I was young and while I understood the concept of being "Prisoner of War," I don't think I understood the full implication of that until I became an adult. My father was in the Army in WWII and my was a Marine. I knew it was important when I wore this bracelet. Now, I understand what a gift it was. Thank you, Capt. Cozart for your honor and courage to my Country.

    My name is Isabelle Thibodeaux. I wore his bracelet. I just found it and wonder if a member of his family would like to have it.

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.
