    Your mom knew my mom from work in Fullerton, Ca. You came over to my house a few times and we played soldier in our back yard when we were kids. When the real bell rang, you answered it and you're a hero in my book. Miss you alot and thanks for your sacrifice and service.

    I see Ricky's grave fairly often as a very good friend's father is buried close to his grave and I visit that grave as well. Sometimes, I place a flower or two on Ricky's grave. I had the biggest childhood crush on Ricky when I was in the third grade. I thought he was so 'cute'! Ricky came from a very loving family. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice. I salute you, Ricky. God Bless You. You are safe now.



    Your fellow classmate.

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.
