REMEMBRANCES

  • His Granddaughter

    Posted on 1/28/14 - by Andi Augustine
    I was curious to look up my Uncle and Grandfather. Both killed in Vietnam. I was overcome with emotion when I see the post here. These men both Leo Claude Hester and Leo Jr. are from my mothers side. Leo Senior is my mothers father.

    Please if you have any memories, pictures, questions, please email me and Augustine.Andi@Yahoo.com I will forward all messages to my mother. She will be overjoyed when I send her to this site.

    Again we thank you for these moments and words.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/2/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear LCDR Leo Claude Hester, 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

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

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.
