    Dear CPL Leonard James Dalman, 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
  • Uncle Leonard - You are Loved and Forever Missed

    Uncle Leonard, I am your niece. I never got the honor of meeting you but my mom, your sister, has always told me how much I remind her of you. For that I am so proud and grateful. I want you to know how proud your family is of you. There is not a day that goes by that I know my mom and my grandma misses you. On Veteran's Day, I know the pain feels fresh to them, like they lost you yesterday. They love you so much and I love the person they told me you were. I want you to know how much your family misses you. I want you to know that you have been and will continue to be loved and remembered for the wonderful person you were. Thank you for your bravery and your sacrifice for this country. Please continue to watch over and protect our family like you did when you were on this earth.

    God Bless You,

    To his family:

    We served together in A Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry of the 1st Cavalry Division, call sign, Lean Apache. It was an honor to have done so. The guys are now getting together for reunions and communicate by email. We have been in contact with a number of family members of those who did not return. If you have questions or would like to contact the guys who served with him please send me an email at I will be more than happy to help in any way I can and I will forward your communication to the group.

    I know this may sound somewhat sterile or distant. That is not my intention. I really do not know what to say to you. But if I or the guys are able to answer questions or provide insights that will be helpful to you, we want to do that. I assure you that we all share your grief. Our hearts go out to you. We will always do all we can for the families. We owe it to you.

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
