    It's been 47 yrs. and I have never forgotten for one single day. I still see you dancing the twist, singing to Buddy Holly and your crazy rancherias. Summer came and off you were to the beach with your music box and your shorts. I don't cry at your grave site. I just sit by your and Papi's. tomb and just talk to you guys.Angels on your doorstep waiting to be led in, Angels on your shoulders guiding your steps. Please hold Mami's hand and guide straight to heaven with all you crazy guys! Until we meet again, for you'll be waiting for me when the time comes.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/15/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Hector Santos Acevedo, 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 www.buildthecenter.org.
