  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Sterling Clark Banks, 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

  • Always My Brother

    Banks, don't know where to begin. I finally found your family in 2010, thanks to Tamara Dietrich from Newport News Daily Press. I spoke to your brothers Rudy, Joe, Kenny, your sister Jeanette, and your former girlfriend whom you loved Carolyn Peoples. They all wondered WHY so many years, that I would contact the family, and they were grateful. I took that long buddy to build up enough courage to talk to them. I know Rudy was ill in 2010 but I pray he's doing OK. I wanted to fly up to meet your family but my counselor said it wasn't a good idea at that time. Brother I remember that dreaded day of May 1968. I always asked years ago, why did you leave me in this condition with PTSD. Banks, I know why and I know now why he chose me. I now have a passion to help other vets to become "over-comers". I have finally put my buddies to rest. Rest in Peace My Brother...You Are Always In My Thoughts...

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.
