    Dear PFC Ronald Dean Fogard, 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

    I was with Ron the morning of June 18th, 1968. I remember him as a valiant Marine. Heavens Gates stand secure, and Ronald D. Fogard is there performing the duties of a United States Marine.

    My name is Laura Hamilton and I am a student at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School in Howard Lake, Minnesota. For my US History class, we were asked to write a remembrance of someone that gave their life during the Vietnam War. I chose Ronald Fogard to write my remembrance for because he was the brother of my aunt Mary Hamilton. I would like to say thank you to him and his family and that I appreciate his 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
