  • Wearing His Bracelet Today in Remembrance

    Posted on 5/28/18 - by CPT Raymond L. Holbrook, US Army
    I have worn his bracelet off and on since the 1970's when I first was presented with it. It just seems especially appropriate to wear it on this Memorial Day. Our fallen heroes have consistently displayed such courage and valor, along with their families left behind. Thank you all for your sacrifice & commitment to freedom.

  • Wore His Bracelet

    I, too, had his name on my silver bracelet which I wore for many years. Oftentimes I’d Google his name but nothing popped, til today (I suppose I was misspelling his name. Ironic I found it now, on Memorial Day weekend). Seeing his picture and now knowing more, is stunning to me. Thank you for this site, allowing me to see the face of the person I admired for so long. And will continue to do so. G-d bless him and his family

  • Service buddies, both from Kansas

    In 1960 I was a Crew Chief Mechanic on a USAF RB-47 aircraft. Ross was a Lieutenant and an Electronics Recon technician on my plane. Ross and I were both Hams radio operators. One day he came out for a flight and told me he would not see me again as he was going into flight training for fighters the next week. I never saw him again. We have seen his name on the wall and have his rubbing. Ross, you were a good man. I think of you often. Please let me salute you, Sir! RIP

  • Roscoe H Fobair

    Posted on 5/24/17 - by Ken Pinkerton
    I have had Roscoe's bracelet since the late 1960's or 70's. On April 29, 2001 I read in the Eureka, CA Time Standard newspaper that his remains had been identified by a single tooth. I am giving the bracelet and the newspaper article to my son who teaches high school US History. I hope he can use it to show the sacrifice that individuals and their loved ones made and how much they lost during the Viet Nam war.

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.
