    Dear SFC Ray Adam Archuletta, 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

    Ray Archuletta was the type of man that was not afraid to work. Before going into the service he worked putting in fence posts along the highway all over Wyoming and Colorado. From what I can gather he wasn't afraid to marshal incoming choppers to pick up his men after a firefight.Thats just the way he was he never expected anyone to do something he would not do himself. He kept his men supplied with ammo and beer as well. There were many of his men who respected him.When he died there was almost half of people in Fremont County,Colorado that attended his funeral. It was truly a sad day the day he was buried. Yes it has not been easy living all these years not having him around. He died doing what he thought was right. May he rest in peace. If there is an Army where he is you can bet that he is there doing what he wants to do. BR

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.
