    Dear SP4 Gerald Francis Filippi, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    My brother in law who gave his life so we could be free. What a sacrifice it was. The whole family died that day, as well. Gerry was a fun loving young man and who always saw life wide open. You are and were loved by so many and darkness spread when you came home draped in the American flag. Your parents, grandparents, and brother are also gone, and I'm hoping you have all found each other. You will always be alive in our hearts. Never forgotten.

    I was told by my mother they got a call on her birthday weekend of this. It ripped my dad Jim apart. He already served his year. My grandmother, his mom Mary Jane, was never the same. No one was. No one really talked about it, but I do. I honor him m and all those who fell or were MIA. Thank you for your sacrifice for our country!

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
