I Still Think of You CousinPosted on 7/3/14 - by Charles L. CarlsonTomorrow is our nation's 238th birthday and it is because of men like JC who went to Vietnam not because he wanted to, but because his country called. It has been that willingness to serve and the blessings of Almighty God that has kept us a free nation all these years.MORE
I knew a number of the men listed on Wall, but the loss of JC hit me like no other. Perhaps it was because we were of the same blood and I remembered our childhood days in Tennessee. Perhaps too it was seeing how Uncle Otis and Aunt Media were devastated. I am proud to claim kin with JC and I am thankful to the Good Lord that He has reunited JC and his parents in His presence.
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/24/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SGT J C Davis, sirMORE
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

Your Dad Still WeepsPosted on 5/30/11 - by Sharron Shaw Thompson firstname.lastname@example.orgYour Dad has always been an inspiration to me. He has lived his life in honor to God, yet he still weeps over the loss of his son. I've watched him care for your gravesite for many years. I pray you know just how greatly you were loved while on earth, and I trust you know how perfectly you have been loved by all of heaven.MORE
Thank youPosted on 10/26/09 MORE
Do not stand at my grave and weepPosted on 12/5/05 - by Bob RossDo not stand at my grave and weep.MORE
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
Mary Frye – 1932
In honor of your ultimate sacrifice to guarantee the freedom we enjoy and many times take for granted. The 8th grade class of Vonore Elementary School made it our goal to travel to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. and "Bring Back The Names" of our heros from Monroe County Tennessee. On May the 9th 2004 we reached our goal as we arrived back in Vonore aboard the bus that had taken twenty nine of our fellow students, two teachers and nine parents to Washington, D.C. to see you and your fellow fallen soldiers names not only return home but return home together. I would also like to say that it was a great experience at the wall, and I thank you for sacrificing your life for our freedom and others freedom. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.MORE

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.
