    Dear PFC Steve Dockery,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. It is Memorial Day weekend, and we remember all you who gave their all. 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.

    A sad day for me. I just found out 45 years later that you did not make it. This has crushed me. You came out onto that open field under fire to help me, Turner and Doc Headrick. We all thought your wound was a clean through hit. With doc dead we did the best we could, but I feel horrible we could not have done more. Doc and Turner did not make it, but I did. I will never understand why or how. You are a true AMERICAN HERO. GODSPEED my infantry brother.

    Dear PFC Steve Julius Dockery, 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

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
