  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC James Edward Hill, 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

  • Peanut Hill

    Posted on 8/8/13 - by Jim Lites
    James Edward (Peanut) Hill was a rough and tumble young man who was older than his years, but underneath his rough exterior was a very good man. I remember Peanut at Pine Bluff High School, where we'd all gather at the smoking area (yes, they had smoking areas at high school back then), and laugh and joke around. Peanut really had a desire to succeed, but I don't think he ever received the proper encouragement from those outside of his home, particularly at Pine Bluff High School. I remember seeing his obituary in the newspaper, and thinking what a waste. A little over three years from his death, I arrived in-country myself. I was a lucky one, I came home.

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.
