    Dear GMC2 Billy Stanley Armstrong, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Billy and I were getting to be good friends as we were both stationed out of Danang on Swift Boats. I was a Gunnersmate 2nd Class. Billy and I went to the Club at Camp Tensha the night before the 19 Boat went down... I have so often thought of our friendship and how I'm sure it would have lasted well after we got out of service. If there is any family that sees this... I have thought of you and your loss often. Such a nice guy!

    I was there that night and one of the people that were the last to see them alive. I was on PCF-12. My book "Swift Boat Down, The Real Story of the Sinking of PCF-19" gives more details of this loss of fine men.

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.
