    Last Memorial Day (2017) I found this page and left a message. I have not forgotten Fred and continue to think of him and others who lost their lives in VN. We honor you, Fred.
  • I still see you Fred!

    It has been so long ... but not so long that I will ever forget...
  • I remember Fred

    Fred was an older boy in my neighborhood, and I remember his house and family. I remember when he sacrificed his life. I thought of him when I went to RVN myself in 69-70, and I looked up his name on the Memorial Wall when I visited WDC. This is Memorial Day 2017 and he is still on my mind. He was a courageous warrior in service to his country. Thanks.

    Dear PFC Fred Walter Jansonius, 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
  • I will always remember Fred; I can see his face right now!

    Fred was my assignment in Speech class in the spring of '66.' How does one impersonate a shy thoughtful guy? I was new to Jamestown and because of a random class assignment I had to study Fred in order to impersonate him. What a blessing it was to take a 'crash course' in Fred and get to know him.

    Although I can still see his face and hear his voice the funny words I claimed to be his are lost... as are you Fred. I miss you ...

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
