    My husband Fred went in at the same time from Cincy, they left together, then different directions my Fred came back safe in late '67. HE was a super person and we both had nothing but great times in high school with him, we think of him often. God Bless and we always thank him for his sacrifice to our country.

    To my friend, visions of growing up in Winton Place fill my age fogged mind and tears still come unbidden.

    Thinking of you today on Memorial Day 2018, Jim, and how much of life you missed over the past 41 years. I know our classmates share my fond memories of you and the sacrifice you made in Vietnam--just two years after our high school graduation. You will never be forgotten.
  • You are not forgotten

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 James E Hoeweler, 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
