    Dave Talken and I were classmates in 1965/1966, we both served in the U.S.Navy. Dave aboard a destroyer and I aboard the USS Constellation (CVA64) Fighter Squadron 94. We both are now involved in the Central Missouri Honor Flight. In September we left a wooden Never Forget plaque in memory of John. Will submit a picture later

  • You were my childhood and teen best buddy

    I saw you the last time when you visited my mother and me on leave before heading back to Vietnam. I always think of you and the fun we had during school days. I recall as you departed you told my mother and me you didn't think you would make it back after returning to Vietnam. I myself was on leave in the Marine Corps and then heading to staging battalion at Camp Pendleton and on to Vietnam. Our Country lost one hell of a soldier and I lost my best friend.....I will always honor you and cherish the memories we experienced together. I know we will meet again in heaven......May God Bless and keep you always buddy......Amen

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.
