    I always remember your great smile and oneryness, You would always take me to the movies on saturday,I would sit in the first row ,first seat,I would fall asleep,you would just pick me up and carry me all the way home.I remember the time when I was little and I told you I was going to smear bubble gum all in your hair,you were reading a comic book,just said,ok,not listening to me,and I put gum in your hair,mom would not let you get on to me because you should have listened to me,I was onery just like you.But you were the greatest older brother any one could have ever wished for...Mom and I and my son visited the wall at Enid,Ok,I left a picture of me and my son in clown,as that was what we were doing at the time,could you ever imagine me as a clown? I was always so shy

    Dear CWO Johnnie Leroy Ishmael, 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
