    Jimmy was a brother whose world revolved around hunting, fishing, family, and friends. He would hunt all day everyday and was the very best shot in all of Lafayette County. His world was built around family, the Darnell & Doak family were large and close families. He was the oldest son to Stanley G. and Lola M. (Doak) Darnell, and brother to Donna M. (Darnell) Sims, and Darryl G. Darnell. Dover and Lexington were his turf, and all his family and friends wanted to hunt or fish with Jimmy. He had a ton of good hunting buddies and to this day we all miss him. He went into the Marines right from High School at age 18 and went straight from boot camp to special training and straight to Viet Nam since he was a Expert sharp shooter. It ended up that his life was given for our Freedom. We miss you Brother, 46 years ago we lost you to such an ugly war the scars are still remain in our hearts. I pray that our God in Heaven has you in that perfect place of Peace.........Love you Bro

    Dear PFC Jimmy Allen Darnell, 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
