    I was only a year old when my father was killed. It was much harder on my four brothers and sister and of course my beautiful mother and his mother.
    I so wish that I could remember my dad. He was a wonderful family man as well as a fabulous pilot.
    My mother tells me that he died doing what he loved. Flying

    We are offspring of heroes. We are the generation that derived from heroes. We remember the sacrifices that they made to secure our liberties. Here's to you, a man I will never meet. A story never to be told. A life to remember. A hero lost. I wish I knew you, to trade stories over a cold drink. I will always hear stories of your life. Of your heroism. I love you grandfather. Rest now for your grandsons hold the line and keep your family safe at night. To my grandfather LT COL Robert Barr an American Hero.

  • To my great grandpa Who I never got to meet

    Posted on 9/25/14 - by Kendra Wilson
    I love family, I always will, even when I part. Around May of 2014 I visited Washington DC. I got to see his name on the wall. I actually got to touch it and think about him. To be honest that is mostly why I wanted to go to Washington, To see my grandpas name made me realize, This country is great, but only because of the sacrifices made. Me going there, made me want to serve as well. When I am old enough I'd like to follow my grandpa, three cousins and mom. I will serve proudly!

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.
