  • Cool November Morning

    Angel, I remember how nervous Anni Whiteraven was the two weeks before she acknowledged everything about you, from deep inside her soul. She was afraid some would not accept what she felt and said. Angel, you have a beautiful daughter in all she is.

  • American Legend

    Posted on 6/5/10 - by JL theblezzy@hotmail.com
    Without Juan Angel Elias one of the greatest war movies ever, Platoon, would have not have been made. According to Oliver Stone, Juan Angel Elias had the presence of a "rock star" and was as good a soldier as anyone had ever seen. Please cherish the memory of this three time combat veteran, a true American hero and legend.

  • A Cool November Morning

    On a cool November morning, I stood before the Wall, then to a stage to speak from my heart of you. My hands shook, but not my voice, for my voice is yours. As I scanned the crowd, your eyes I found, in every man who stood to listen. Yes Father they even cheered, but I could not find the tears, that waited and watched as well. Angel Until this moment I never understood... but now I do. You are always with me, and I am never alone, and in the cold dark of that November night, the tears that waited came, and with them the soul of every name upon that Wall. Father your name is seared into my heart and soul, and I Thank you for going back a third time, so that another daughter, could stand at this Wall, and know too the sacrifice this child had made. You are not held by this Wall nor the wind nor rain, just as you lived know that I carry you with me, for I am you, on a cool November morning.
    You held me on a cool November morning as I came to this world, as I hold you each and everyday. I remember all too well the last time you held me another November day, looking into your eyes I held the world as I do now. Yes I do remember... Father a new day has come,and yet you are never gone simply a breath away

    Your Loving Daughter

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 6/11/04 - 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

    You were Oliver Stone's motivation for the movie "Platoon". Thank you for your service to our country. God Bless you and R.I.P.

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.
