    I was a class mate of Bobby at NGC 1957-1961 and unfortunately never saw him again after graduation. I never learned the details of this death.

    I grew up with Capt. Garths son. We celebrated his life as we played with his uniforms as kids, never knowing what he had done until we grew a little older. I never forget when I realized why he wasn't coming home at night to take care of his son and daughter and wife, it was the day I could no longer act a child.

    I went on to NGC to follow in his footsteps and remember when they built a wall with his name on it on campus. He is a face I will never forget, a memory which forged my allegence to the United States of America, and a story which is all about sacrafice. Miss him so much and thank his family for him.

    Dear Captain Robert Wilton 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

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
