    Dear CPL Phillip Dean Hardy, sir

    As a native North Carolinian, 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

  • My hero & My True Love

    Posted on 11/9/09 - by
    My Love You have traveled with me for 41+ years And will be with me forever! My love for you is as strong for you today as it was the day you walked away from me in hurt and anger. But I was hurt worst the only regret I have and I am still carrying it with me is when I ask you to wait till I was 18 to marry you or at least a few more months. I should have listened to you and maybe we would have had our family and growing old together. Forgive me my Love as I have forgiven you for things that happened after the worst day of my life. I still love you and always will and I still waited for you after you left in hopes that when you came home you still wanted me! You are My Hero and will always be My True Love

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
