    Having gone to Steve's funeral... I don't feel a son and brother's life was worth a folded American Flag. My own brother was awarded the bronz star for V.. He came home. Steve did not. It was a senseless "war" inthat as most, everyone looses.

    Sorry I forgot Mike in my last post. My love to Mrs. "C"

    I watched from the livingroom window the morning "M" took you to the airport. We grew up together along with Doug, Tim, and Jamie {the surprise}. If any of you read this, this is Susi from next door. I have a facebook susi Melka Wilensky.

    Please get in touch. I am in San Diego, however will be moving to Atlanta this year. Bobby and his family have lived there since 1980. I no longer have anyone in SD; so I will be moving. Much love and many memories, Susi

    Dear PFC Stephen Earl Cunningham, 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
