Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/26/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SGT Larry Randall Arwood, sirMORE
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
Thanks.Posted on 11/11/09 MORE

In honor of your ultimate sacrifice to guarantee the freedom we enjoy and many times take for granted, The 8th grade class of Vonore elementary School made it our goal to travel to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. and "Bring Back The Names" of our Heros from Monroe County Tennessee. On May 9th 2004 we reached our goal as we arrived back in Vonore aboard the bus that had taken twenty-nine of our fellow students, two teachers and nine parents to Washing , D.C. to see you and your fellow fallen soldiers names not only return home but return home together. We would also like to say you are remembered. Mr. PeoplezMORE

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.
