  • My Big Brother

    The best Brother a guy could have. I remember the outlook on life taught me a lot. Somethings I still use today when talking to young people going on interviews. The polished shoe story I carry with me and when I retell it, I give you credit for it.. Thanks for that. After 30 plus years I had the opportunity to reconnect with your two sons and their families. You would be proud of these two young men. They wanted to know more about you. I am so glad they came to Paris. They have very nice wives and children..I took Barry to your final resting place. He stood in silence for a long time. I remember the day you left for Vietnam. You did not want to go, but you knew you had to. Still miss you very much. Mom and Dad are with you now. You were one cool Brother.
  • Pledge Brother Bill

    Bill and I were pledge brothers when at SIU. I will never forget his humor and how he made everyone laugh. He was a real story teller and kept the attention of all present. When I visited the "wall" I found Bill's name and placing my hand on it and each time I think of Bill and those who give their life during and later because of Vietnam, I thank him and others for their service.
    God Bless you, Bill.
    God Bless their families and
    God Bless America

  • A good guy

    We went to high school together and though I did not know you well you were always one to say hello with a smile face on your face. America and its goodness are made by people such as yourself who took the time for such simple but kind gestures. Thank you and may you rest on peace!
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 William Owen Creech Jr, 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, Sir

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
