Remembering an American HeroPosted on 5/18/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.com
Dear SP4 Larry Robert Garcia, 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

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYERPosted on 6/13/04 - by Chris Spencer email@example.comIt is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not dieMORE
We RememberPosted on 11/10/03 - by Natalie Stoller firstname.lastname@example.orgI am a student at Gridley High School, Gridley Illinois. We were assigned a class project to post remembrances on the Virtual Wall for those who were killed during the Vietnam War. You’ll never know how much your service is appreciated. You made the supreme sacrifice and died for your country for freedom. Words cannot express my thankfulness, and I want you to know how much of an inspiration you are to many young Americans today. Your courage and bravery stands out and will forever live on. You will never be forgotten. May God bless you and your family.MORE
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.
