    Dear PFC Rockwell Selden Herron, 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

  • Remembering Rocky

    Posted on 2/26/14 - by Judy Perrotta
    I remember you as if it were yesterday. You, the tall ,handsome blonde guy with the tan build. I looked up to you in awe. Seeing you ride your motorcycle up my street in the summer. Funny, I could hear you coming and knew it was you. Although I was just a little kid then, I can still see you on that motorcycle with your curly blond good looks. Such a waste that you left us way too early and now with a young son of my own I can only imagine the pain your mom felt when we all learned of your death. After all, this was Haworth, our little town where everyone knew everyone, even if not by name. Our class trip to Washington, DC in eigh th grade, we stopped to see your grave. So sad to see your metal marker with your name. Not even time to get you a real marker. Watching the bulldozer continue to dig more graves for those who would come after you. I will never forget you "Rocky"

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.
