    Dear SP4 Tommy Doyle Higgerson, 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

    Tommy, you and my dad (Samuel Dewayne Tanner aka. Claude Tanner) were best friends from way back. He made me feel like you were my family. A long time ago you and my dad promised to name your first born sons' after each other. Even after you were taken from him he still honored that promise. So, here I am Tommy Doyle Tanner. I am doing my best to honor that name. My father passed on to join you in 04/04/2004. He never knew that I intended to honor you by keeping your promise to my dad. On 12/12/2007 Samuel Dean Tanner was born. Just 9 days after your birthday. I hope that you are as proud of him as my dad is of me.

    Tommy, you lost your life in the service of your country and for people representing freedom everywhere. May you be blessed with the company of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Father.

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
