    You died less than 1 month after I was born. I never knew you, my family never knew yours. I wear a POW/MIA dog tag with your name inscribed on it every day. I want you to know that you are not forgotten, and that we, the ones you fought for, appreciate and miss you.

    I understand why you fought, and I thank you.

    my sister Sue wore your MIA bracelet every day since the day she received it. She only took it off one time, because of cancer surgery. It was put back on immediately afterwards. Sadly she is now buried with it. Our love and prayers will always go out to his family and friends.

    I think of you today as I wear the bracelet bearing your name. I wear this bracelet every Memorial Day, Veteran's Day and Fourth of July. I am grateful for the sacrifice you and many, many others made so that I can be free. Thank you Major Charles Austin!!

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.
