    Dear LCPL Ralph Ferguson, 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

  • I still remember you my friend

    Posted on 6/26/02 - by Pam Haynes
    It's 35 yrs and only now can I talk out loud to you. I can still hear your voice and see your face. I remember you walking back to the car after paying your Mothers insurance, us dancing at all the school dances, us talking for hours on my front porch or on the phone with our Mothers pleading with us to go to sleep, your marrying Sue and me marrying Jim. The last image I have is of you standing in the doorway of your Mothers home after her funeral. They sent you back to Viet Nam the next day and then you were gone. I hope you always knew how much I loved you. I've told my kids about you and what fun we had as kids. Your life was never very easy. Even though you leaving left an open wound, God favored you by easing the pain you suffered. You are in a much better place. I just wish you hadn't suffered so much in your young life and never really got to live. I love you and will always remember you my friend. Pam

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.
