    Dear Lcpl John Delgado,
    Thank you for your service as an Antitank Assaultman. You were born on my dad's birthday, say hi to him in heaven. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    As we stood at that wall today and traced your name and left you an American flag of a fallen brother we felt your presence and honored your sacrifice. You will forever be young and the blood you shed for our freedom will never be forgotten. You are a heroe and we know God called you to his presence because you were deserving of that honor....though you walked through the valley of the shadow of death you didn't fear any evil cause you were the baddest mother..... In the valley...a U.S. Marine.... Thank you for your service !!!

    Dear LCPL John Pedro Delgado, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

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
