    Dear 2LT William Douglas Dickson, 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

    Thank you to all who posted here.He was the most wonderful of men, kind, funny, easy going and would have been the greatest father. My beautiful daughter is the present he gave me and she in turn blessed me with a carbon copy grandaughter. On this father's day his two girls will be in DC at the wall to pay tribute to a man who should still be here with us. They both are so like him, in appearance and values. Both love the outdoors and all animals. I think he is pleased they turned out so well. God Bless all who remember him.

    Doug, it seems like yesterday when we were attending Humboldt State College in northern California and working summers for the US Forest Service in 1963-65. We graduated in Feb. 66 with B.S. degrees in Forest Management. By May 66 we were at Ft. Jackson. You were one week ahead of me in Basic and AIT. Then off to Infantry OCS at Benning. You were still a week ahead of me and in the OC Company next door. Our paths last crosses a week before you graduation and commissioning as a 2nd Lt. I read of your passing in the Stars and Stripes as I arrived in country to start my tour. I was devistated! I always visit your name when I'm at the WALL and remember. You are in my thoughts and prayers my friend till one day we meet again.

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
