  • Never Forgotten

    Posted on 8/21/14 - by Stephen G W Munro
    As a cherry on patrol (at the back of the squad of course) I picked a different (easier) path through a knee high hedge row than the men ahead of me had taken. Terrance saw where I went and chewed my ass out like no one had ever done before or since. The fact that the six of us were a click from the platoon base camp in an area known to be hostile didn't deter him from yelling at the top of his voice up one side of me, taking a dump and then yelling down the other. The lessons I learned (always step where others have stepped and never take the "easy" path) undoubtable saved my life in the booby trap laden An Do valley.

    He was a good man and will never be forgotten while I am alive.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Terrance Neil Gentry, 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

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.
