  • To a great man and true friend

    Posted on 3/29/15 - by Robert L. Sears
    Joe, My trusted and true friend from our days at West Point. You were one to look up to; one to trust; to be with during adventures such as our hitch-hiking from coast to coast; to admire for your fastidious application of efforts to excel at whatever you attempted and to understand others and teach them also to succeed and often excel. You were an exceptional man whom others looked to for friendship, wisdom, cheerful support and companionship.
    Striving for perfection in whatever endeavor pursued was your personal hallmark which served you and others whose lives you touched, well. As one of those others, I salute you and love you as a brother who gave his life serving this nation. May God bless and keep you. Your friend and buddy Bob Sears USMA 52

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.
