REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Dennis Rex Estes, 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

  • Hi Denny

    Posted on 9/9/08 - by Larry Petersen Lobo7@Yahoo.com
    I remember when we were both little boys, sitting of the C/B wall, behind your home, on Lennox Blvd. You asked me if You were my best friend.

    I made it through the Viet Nam war, because I did my Navy duty mostly in Iceland. I even complained about the cold wind; imagine that!

    I wish that we had stayed closer, or attended the same High School. I missed you in those days, and wondered where you were.

    In any case, I am most pleased that you had the Spirit of the Living God dwelling in your heart. We will soon have the time to catch up on what each of us has been doing.

    Finally; yes, you were my best friend.

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 11/17/04 - 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

    My name is Justine James and I am involved in a Gridley High School Posting Project. I know it must have been really hard to leave your family and friends to go serve our country, but I just want you to know that I am very thankful that you did. Because of the sacrifices you made, the people of this country are able to enjoy some of the freedoms we have now that we may not of had otherwise. Thank you soldier for your sacrifices and heroism.
    Sincerely,
    Justine James

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.
