  • Dick Devine Remembrance, 50 Years Later

    Posted on 1/11/18 - by James Riley rileyslaw@gmail.com
    I still vividly remember you Dicky, even though you died 50 years ago yesterday. You were often in my family’s home hanging out with my older brother, Bob. Just a few weeks ago I visited the the National Viêt Nam Memorial WALL in Washington, DC with another of your neighborhood friends, Gordon Sheppard, to find your name on Panel 34, and recite a brief prayer. The last time you were in my family’s house, in September of 1967, you held my new-born baby-sister (Kate) in your arms and said, “I’ll never have a beautiful baby like this.” My Mother responded, saying “Oh Dick, you’ll have lots of babies someday.” Maybe You knew, but still determined to do your duty. Thank You for Your Service.

    Richard, I never knew you, but I heard your name often before I went over to Central Highlands where you served and died. It was only after I returned that I could understand your sacrifice. Sorry we never met in life to have a beer to share our stories. Maybe in another life. Richard, please.........RIP.

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Posted on 1/15/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net

    Dear American Hero,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

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.
