    Dear CPL Raymond Calvin Guest, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Dear Soldier,
    I am writing to you on behalf of our Gridley High School Posting Project. Our high school is posting remembrances to Vietnam Veterans. Some of us have done 200 postings a semester. My name is Amanda Kinney, and I am 17 years old. You were close to my age when you fought for our country and gave the Supreme Sacrifice. You died fighting for the country you and I believe in, the United States of America. I sit here and wonder would I have the courage to do what you did, and I honestly don’t think I could. I would be so scared to go through what you soldiers went through, not knowing if you would live to see another day, not knowing if you would get to accomplish all that you had planed on accomplishing after high school and college, but you were strong and brave! I just want to thank you for your Supreme Sacrifice. You will never be forgotten.

    Never Forgotten,
    Amanda

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.
