REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice

    Posted on 8/6/14 - by Brian Bowden
    I'm a reporter for The McDuffie Progress and I'm writing a story for our newspaper on the Vietnam Veterans in our county who are still missing their picture for the virtual wall. I have located two, of the four, that are missing. I have relative contacts for them, as well as some good leads on the last two I'm missing.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/8/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SSGT John Ben Gay, 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

  • Your Angel Day

    Posted on 10/25/09 - by 60's Girl
    Mere words cannot express my appreciation for your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice that you made so that other might have their freedom.

    Although it may have seemed and others might feel the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war I am one American who does not believe this. I believe that what you did for your country was not in vain but that your sacrifice has been and will always be an influence for good for our country for generations to come.

    Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing up for what was right and for paying the ultimate price.

    In your honor today on your Angel Day I leave this short poem for you:

    “There is not greater love than this.
    There is not a greater gift that can ever be given.
    To be willing to die, so another might live.
    There is not greater love than this.”
    ~ Steven Curtis Chapman

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.
