REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/13/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Morris Graham, 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

    My mere words of “thank you" cannot express the way I really feel about
    your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice that you made. But, I do most humbly thank you.

    Although others might feel that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, I am one American who does not feel this way. I believe that what you did for our country was not in vain, but has and will always be an influence for good for us today and for countless 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.”

    FOREVER REMEMBERED

    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
    Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

    Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
    KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

    We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you , one of the gentle heroes and patriots lost to the War in Vietnam:

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

    Dear Soldier,
    I am doing a project in a couple of my classes and we have to write remembrances for as many Vietnam Veterans as we want. I am 17 years old. You were close to my age when you went to Vietnam War and gave your Supreme Sacrifice. You fought, gave your all, and died for what you believed in, and I sit here and wonder would I have the courage to do what you had to do. I know I would be scared as I’m sure you were. I just want to let you know that you will never be forgotten.

    God Bless You,
    Amanda Kinney

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.
