    You are not forgotten and you still live on. Lost my first bracelet in the ocean and received a new one this week. I promise to always remember you and your sacrifice to keep me and my family free. Also to keep it on my arm forever. Thanks from the son of a Vietnam Marine Vet.

    About 30 years ago my two children and I got 3 dog tags for soldiers that were MIA's. We faithfully used them, but as the years passed somehow they were miss placed, but your name was always remembered. Steven thank you for the ultimate gift you have given to me and my children. May God Bless you and your family. You will be remembered always. A Mass will be said for you in your honor Sir at my church..

    Rest in Peace

    I lost my husband last year and have finally gotten the courage to start cleaning things out. I came across a box that I have since I was in high school that I had not seen in many years. Inside was a metal bracelet that I had purchased when I think I was a junior (1968) that I wore for many many years. I believe the day they announced that the last Marine was being sent home from Vietnam I was able to take the bracelet off. It is strange that I should once again come across it on Veterans Day 2016. It has your name on it as 1st Lt Steven Armitstead 3/17/69. I often wondered if you had made it home, and prayed that you had. I see now that you are listed on the "wall". I have seen the wall twice. but did not find your name. I thank you for your service and am very sad that I could not tell you to your face. God bless and keep you forever in his heart.

    I wore Steven's bracelet in high school during the early 1970s and am forever grateful for his sacrifice.

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.
