    Larry, it is now 2015, and I have lived a full life, had kids went to their games, all the things you never got. You of all people should have had that. After all these years I still miss you and kiss your sign on one of the horse trails out back. I know you hear me when I say every day " God Bless You" Denny

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Laurence John Dunn, 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

  • My Friend

    I served with Larry in Vietnam in 1965-66. He was my friend and my squad leader. He never asked his men to do anything he wouldn't do himself and that's all you can ask from a leader. To this day (September 21, 1999) I miss him. Larry was killed in an ambush in Bon Son on August 25, 1966 with other members of the 1st Bn, 2nd Inf. I visit him in Washington DC evry other Veteran's Day.

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.
