    Jimmy,
    The pain of your absence was grieved by many. As a nephew who grew up amongst your Brothers and Sisters, I was gifted with the love our family shared and celebrated on many Sundays and holidays. I could only imagine one more prankster amongst us. This is what it is to be a Family. Rest in peace , may we meet someday.

    I grew up with JIMMY in cedar hill tn ,jimmy was bit of a jokester a good ole boy always smiling and laughing ,we would nickel up as we called it back in those days about five of us cedar hill boys and get a gallon a beer and ride around in jimmy's old Buick I was the youngest at 15 the others all 16,17 and jimmy at age 18 was the old man .JIMMY was an expert with a 22 rifle one of the best shots I ever saw and had plenty of squirrels to prove it, I was living and working in INDIANAPOLIS when I got the call that JIMMY had been killed in VIETNAM It was a sad day for his family and all his friends I think about him every time I go through CEDAR HILL TN where we grew up as boys and out of all the boys I grew up with in those days all are gone now but I will always have each memory of every one of them and as they all look down from heaven I bet JIMMY is leading them with that big smile.RIP MY FRIENDS

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 James Richard Adams, 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

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.
