  • You Saved My Father's Life

    SGT. Baker, My father, Larry "Buzz" Morgan recently told me a story regarding your final moments on Earth. You were on patrol together and we're ambushed. He said that a grenade came in and you pushed him down behind a log and picked up the grenade and threw it back where it came from. You saved his life. Unfortunately you did not survive the rest of the fight but I want you and your family to know that your sacrifice was not in vain. My father survived and came home. My family will always honor you and will forever be in debt to you.

  • Never Forgotten

    Posted on 5/26/15 - by Joe Morgan
    The ultimate sacrifice an individual can make is to serve their country, without question, in a time of war. We grew up in the same neighborhood. You were my friend. You have never been, nor will you ever be, forgotten.

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.
