    Lewis: You made the Ultimate Sacrifice.

    If any Family members or Friends of Lewis reads this I am looking for a picture of him to send to W.DC for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. It would be nice to have a picture to put with is name. Military or H.S. picture will do.

    Web site is VVMF. Org/ Wall of Faces.

    Thank You Jim Sawmiller

    Dear SP4 Lewis Eugene Avery, 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

  • Thanks to a Hero

    Lewis is always in my mind. Someday I will be able to thank him for saving my life and tell him how sorry I am that he lost his. He was a good man who had a big heart. I think of him at all holidays and days when I am having a good time with friends and family. I am so sorry that he had to miss those things.

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.
