  • MIA Bracelet

    I wore a bracelet with Captain Sam Adair Jr's name on it when I was a teenager for many years. I still treasure it. Thank you and your family for your sacrifice and service. My husband and brothers are Veterans and I have the greatest respect for all who've served. May God bless you, your family, veterans and their families.
  • Dear Captain.

    Happy Birthday, Captain. 77 today. We are saddened that you were lost so early. Such a fine, brave man - I have no doubt. I'm wishing you were here to celebrate with a sadness in my heart. So loved.

    Happy birthday, Sam. You would have been 77 today. We would have had a big party as you loved to celebrate your day and our nation's day. I love and miss you so much.

    46 years ago today you left us here on earth and went to heaven to wait for us. I thought it would get better, that I would not hurt as much as the years went by but that is not the case. I love and miss you just as much as back then. I look forward to being with you again one day. I love and miss you so very much.

    It is hard to believe how long ago you met your maker. Fortunately, you were doing what you enjoyed - serving your country and flying a fighter jet. May God continue to bless those who loved and cared for you

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
