  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/13/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Clyde Garth Jr, 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

  • MY HERO

    Posted on 3/25/10 - by Pamela Brock pbrocksfamily@peoplepc.com
    My Dear Father,

    I never really knew you- I was only a year old when you passed. You made the ultimate sacrifice for man, and I will always love you and remember you as "My Hero". I pray that your grandchildren will always remember you as a great man, although they never had a chance to meet you. I am a proud daughter of someone who sacrificed his life for his fellow man. Thanks!

  • On Your Angel Day

    Posted on 10/26/09 - by 60's Girl
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country and for the sacrifice of your precious life.

    It is a privilege to be able to honor you for standing up for what was right and for the courage that you demonstrated.

    I know that there are many who say that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, but for this American that is not true. What you did for the freedom of others was not in vain but has always been and will always be an example of good and honor today and for generations to come.

    You will never be forgotten by me and I will honor your name and your sacrifice all my days.

    In honor of your Angel Day I leave this poem for you:

    “Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts.
    And we are never, ever the same.” ~ Unknown

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.
