    Dear PFC John Edison Hampton, 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

    My Uncle John, I cannot remember seeing you but once and that was when I was around 4 y/o and being lifting up to look into the glass of the casket that held your body. I was very touched by that moment and remembered how special everyone told me you were. My dad, your brother, Carmel Hampton, has since shared many memories with me of you. He is 84 y/o still strong and vibrate and has a memory that is unreal so his memories of you will forever be in my heart.

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.

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
