    Hey Ralph. It's your niece Danielle... I want you and everyone to know how much I love you and how much I wish I could've met you. I make your little brother, my dad, tell me stories about you all the time. I love them. You have always been my idol from the time I was a little girl. Now days people don't understand what wars take away from families. I never got to meet you. I always cry when I think about the fact I never got to meet my idol bc he was taken away.. I know you are looking over me and my family.

    I love you

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LCPL Phillip Ralph Hardin, 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

    Uncle Ralph, thank you for all of your sacrifices. You are our hero and will forever live in our hearts. Even though I never got the chance to meet and know you, I will love you and hold you dear. I have all of your letters you wrote home, and will always hold them dear as a way to keep your memory alive. You were loved by so many and missed by so many. Your great nieces and nephews will also know what a hero you are and how much you gave for your country. I love you uncle.

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
