REMEMBRANCES

  • My College Classmate Too

    I saw the remembrance posted by another Fairfield classmate, Jay Standish, after our 50th reunion last year. I didn’t know Mike other than by name. What surprised me was that I didn’t know any of our classmates died in Vietnam until our reunion. As an artillery OCS graduate, my tour in Vietnam overlapped with Mike’s. It’s funny how our paths loosely crossed and it took 50 years before I knew. Rest In Peace.

    Dear Sgt Michael Demore,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Today is the 43rd anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. 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.

  • My Classmate at Fairfield University

    Mike was my classmate at Fairfield from 1963-1967. I recall him being very friendly and just a nice guy. I did not know him well but I was Assistant Editor of the school newspaper during freshman year and I got to know him better when he took over for me when I became a columnist and he became editor for the next 3 years. I went to Marine Corps OCS upon graduation and was a Marine Plt. Cmdr. in Vietnam in 68-69. I did not know until much later that he served and was killed. He appears to be the only classmate who died in combat. We just had our 50th reunion and remembered him as our fallen classmate. We honor him and his devotion to duty.

  • Won't Forget

    I didn't know you Michael Demore, but I went on a Washington DC trip recently. My group visited the Vietnam Memorial and were told to take a rubbing. I swear I took about twenty minutes looking for a name that interested me or sparked something inside of me. As I came across your name, I knew I had to pick you. So for the rest of my life I will pray for you and show my fellow soldiers my respect.

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.
