    I remember you from high school. I remember you sitting behind the wheel of your car (I don't remember the make but I know it was cool!) and your "sly" smile. I remember that you were a likeable and friendly guy. I think of you often. I thank you for your service. Bless you and your family.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 2LT Ralph Lee 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

  • I remember Ralph

    I grew up with Ralph. We went all the way through school together. He was the first person whom I knew personally to lose his life in Vietnam. This is his high school graduation photo. I visit Ralph whenever I visit my husband who is also on The Wall. God bless all the men who served. God bless the USA.

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.
