  • I will never forget you

    Posted on 1/17/17 - by Anthony C. Francis
    Nick, it has been a very long time since we crossed paths, almost fifty years. I have never forgotten you and never will. I still thin of you often. I just happened to come across this site today and I was compelled to leave some words for you. You were a great person, a tremendous soldier, and always a pleasure to be with. It hurt me so badly when you moved onto that next phase of your life. It was hard for me to believe that you were gone. You will always be an important part of who I am. May God bless you abundantly. Lt Francis, your platoon leader.

    Hello Nick. I would like too thank you for laying your life down for this country. I actually ended up marrying your great nephew! He's in the army now too. We thank you for the sacrifice you made and wish we could meet you today.

    Dear SP5 Nick Ulysses Fleener, 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
