Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/19/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SGT Gerard Joseph Dunne, sirMORE
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

I hope to be as good a man as you are when my time comes and I stand before the MAN. God blessed us for having you as a friend. It won't be too long we will meet again. Love you and miss you terribly. I hope you and my Pattyann are having a good laugh, as we all once did, in heaven.MORE

CuzPosted on 4/15/04 - by Kathleen Moriarty firstname.lastname@example.orgIt's been such a long time. We've all changed so much...except for you. I still see that grin. I wonder how we all would be now... had you returned to us...the times we would have had.MORE
Another Easter has come and gone without you. I remember such a Sunday morning when we were about 13...going to Holy Ghost in our Sunday "best"...you telling me how thin and beautiful my ankles looked! You always had a way with words, Cuz. I never forgot that day. You always knew when a girl needed a compliment. So many times...and how we laughed.
Dororthy, Maureen and Brian are fine, but they miss you so. You would have gotten along great with your nieces. And your Mom...she carries on, with a smile...there is no other way.
Wish you could have met my kids, Gerard...I know you see them now, but I would have liked it...if they could have met you for themselves, and not just through my stories...as they now see you. Can you believe, I'm a grandmother!
Can't say that I wished I had you in my life all these years, Gerard...you were there...part of my life...every day.
You are in my prayers, please keep me in yours.
Miss that grin, Cuz.
The Uncle I Never KnewPosted on 1/17/04 - by Erin FarrellYou were taken from our family before I was born and I wish I could have met you. I know from the stories I've heard, you would have been a great uncle and we would have been very close. I know you are watching over me always.MORE

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.
