  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SFC James Edgar Dunkin Jr, 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

  • Angel Day

    You will never be forgotten by this American girl.

    Your life was full of honor, devotion, and love for your country. The sacrifice of your precious life was not and will not be in vain.

    You have and will be a source of all that is good for generations to come. This is evident in the messages that the youth of America leave on your remembrance sites.

    You are not merely a name engraved on a granite wall -- you were and are a son, a brother, a husband, a grandson, a father, an uncle, a nephew, and a friend. You are real and as long as I live you will never be forgotten.

    God bless you and your family on this your angel day.

    Rest well now -- I will see on the other side.

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 10/23/04 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

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.
