    A wonderful young man, so happy go lucky. I am still saddened about losing him, and cherish the memories I have. I have visited the wall, and have pictures of his name there. I am very proud of him, and thank him for the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Love you, Gerry.

    I think of you often and will always be grateful for your bravery and courage, but most of all your service so that I can continue to be free.

    I attended St. Daniel the Prophet with Gerald but at some point his family moved to Downers Grove and I had lost contact with him. Today, May 29, in church our Pastor asked that we remember those fallen in service to our country and I immediately thought of Gerald. Sadly he was the only one from the Garfield Ridge neighborhood I am aware of that died in Viet Nam. There may have been others, but Gerald was a classmate, a friend that was funny and loyal, and just an all around good guy to know. Rest in Peace Gerald

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
