REMEMBRANCES

  • Childhood memory / Never forgotten

    Posted on 11/14/17 - by Eddie Lowe EDDIE.LOWE@YAHOO.COM
    Johnny's mother and my mother we're friends as we lived only a few houses up the street from them. I was a little boy when he left for bootcamp and remember looking up to him as some kind of superhero. When he first returned home from bootcamp it was all confirmed, he was a superhero or at least I thought so. I was so happy to see him when he came home and then after a few weeks he left again. Other than hearing my mother and Johnny's mother talk of him I remember being on our front porch as some men from the military drove up to Johnny's house got out of the car, walked up to his mother who was standing on their front porch and she fell. She collapsed, my mother ran out of our house down the street to Johnny's mother as she screamed as I had never before then or since. I was very sad and didn't understand as I was just child. I've never forgotten Johnny Delaney and I never will. God Blessed me with a memory of him and for that I am grateful. Rest in peace my friend and you are proof that their are superheroes in heaven..

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 7/29/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear CPL John Patrick Delaney III, 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

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.
