    Dear SGT Oddie C Hailey, 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

    I long for your presence in my life and am sad that I never had a chance to have you in my life. I am so proud of you and your courageous and unselfish heart.

    Hello, I’m a student from Gridley High School. For a project, my school has decided to go through this website and write remembrances for all of the men and women who lost their lives for this country.
    Thank you for fighting to protect our country in its time of need. The courage you had shown was very admirable. Every American should strive to be like you. You will never be forgotten.
    Thanks again T.J.

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
