    Dear PFC Emmett Ray Davis, 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

  • For a fellow kid

    How many kids like me are remembered?
    I also am 18. I just joined the army, in this turbulent year, 2002. It breaks my heart to see a man my own age, dead and unremembered. Who would remember them? Who will remember me? They left with a whole life ahead. For a man to give not only his life, but his entire future, what supreme sacrifice. I thank God for the dead kids. And I pray for the souls of the unremembered. Godspeed, my broken brothers. Now it's my turn.

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
