  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL William Olin Anderson, 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

    Curt Carter

    Bill, I will always remember you not only back in Pacoima Jr. High, but the time we spent at Mag-16, Marble Mountain, Viet Nam. How would anyone believe that we would meet up again after almost 6 year's from the last time we saw each other. Both in the Marine Corps, at the same place in Viet Nam doing the same thing together again. I shall never forget our talks and the day you went away, it was two days before my 21st birthday July 8, 1969. The sorrow I felt then is still deep within my heart and mind. Each year that has passed, has not changed those feelings about you not coming home. I miss you my brother and will always hold you up in my thoughts and prayers.
    "Semper Fidelis"

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.
