    Nevin had a paper route for the weekly Southwest Philadelphia Globe Times and my house was on his route. I didn't know him well, but he was a nice kid, always polite and respectful when he stopped to collect. He was taken from his family Way too soon. R.I.P. Nevin.
  • Went through AIT with Nevin

    Nevin and I were in AIT at Fort Dix. I spent several week ends with him and even visited his family when we were on leave. He was a good soldier and I am sorry that he passed away while serving in Vietnam. RIP my friend and thanks for your sevice.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Nevin Oakley Farnsworth Jr, 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

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
