REMEMBRANCES

  • GARY BRUCE BAKER

    Posted on 1/16/17 - by Darlene L. Baker Lowrey
    Dear Uncle Gary,
    I was very young when your life was taken in Vietnam, but I will never forget you. I was so frightened when alone I received you memorial plaque for my father, your brother the late Elmer K. Baker. Recently, my son was crucially injured in Afghanistan due to TBI from a gun shot wound. That was July 7th, 2014 and although he survived, he remains in a wheel chair and is still currently in a VA rehabilitation center. My love and respect has grown immensely for all those who gave so much for our freedom fighting in wars so we can claim the right for freedom in our beloved country. Thank you for who you were and what you did, giving up your life as such a young man.
    Love and respect always,
    Your niece,
    Darlene Lee Baker Lowrey

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP5 Gary Bruce Baker, 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.
