    Today, you were visited by two former Dalton High School classmates (Curt Blosser and Tim Schroeder) who also served in VN. We placed flowers at your resting place. We remember you and your sacrifice for this nation. We were the fortunate ones who returned to enjoy a full life. You remain in our thoughts and prayers. We will reunite someday according to God's grace and mercy.

    We were neighbors and it was a sad day when I read that your life on earth was over. See you on the other side!

    Leroy, I remember you. Growing up in Dalton - as teenager in the mid to late 60's - I remember asking about draft (selective service). People would say you were drafted - you paid the Ultimate. Perhaps my older brothers Roger and Kenny remember more. There were a lot of Gerber families in the area, but I remember your father died when you were just a few weeks old. I do not remember that day you were KIA. I remember flag raising before our football games. Rather often the announcer would say "Wayne County (Ohio) lost another "Son, Brother - KIA in South Vietnam. The flag was raised to full staff and then to half mast. As I see it - it's our duty to remember.

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.
