  • A true American Hero

    Posted on 5/30/16 - by Irvin Moran
    Wayne and I seved together in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C. and in the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam in 1966, 1967 and 1968. Wayne and I, along with three others, volunteered for the Brigade's Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol Platoon and served together in that unit until my return to the States in April of 1968. Wayne was subsequently K.I.A. on May 1, 1968. He was an outstanding paratrooper who was extremely calm during the most extreme conditions. We served together on many LRRP missions. The photo of Wayne on this site was taken at the conclusion of one of those missions. I think of Wayne often. ..

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Wayne Lynn Harland, 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

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.
