    Dear PFC Louis Peter Hernandez, 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.

    With respect, Sir

    I remember each day how you would stand outside our house and blow the 'Chicano Whistle.' Danny was always asleep, so I would go and wake him up for you. Chicano's never knocked on doors. You were 'too cool' for that. I remember the day we got word of your death. So shocking and painful. I will never forget the day we saw you on the news, in battle, resting your head against a rock. You looked so tired. Because the news reel was old --as in those times-- we did not have satellite transmission; we clung to hope, it was a mistake. Then, the hard fact, you were gone. I went to the wall in D.C. last month to visit, you are not forgotten. Semper FI

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
