    Dear PFC Wayne Clarence Elledge, 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

    When you died it took something away from me that has never been given back and that was my heart and souls, you were my angel and even though i was only 4, i still remember those two officers coming to our door in texas, and mama running to the back room, this is etched into my mind for the rest of my life, it hit us like a ton of bricks, and you are one of the reasons why i joined the military also. you and all your comrads will never be forgotten and i shall cherish the moments i knew you my brother, i love you always love Pat and family..

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
