    Daniel and I never met, as I arrived in Vietnam in 1971. However, through a mutual friend I heard about him ad learned a lot about him. After a 15 year search for relatives, with no success, I finally had occasion to fly into Las Vegas. Not knowing where to start, I drove to Carson City, and within 30 minutes, located his grave at Empire Cemetery. We were able to place flowers on his grave, and it seemed as though a final chapter in my life had been completed. God bless you and your Family, Dan Ackerman, for your service and your sacrifice.

    Dear SGT Daniel Leverne Ackerman, 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

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
