    Dear Mr. Joslen, I was only 2 years old when you died, Today my family and I visited “The Wall That Heals” which is a replica of the Vietnam Memorial. I took a rubbing of your name to show my dad who was one of your best friends and talks about you still. I wish it had been different and that you could have grown old together. Thank you for your sacrifice.

    Phil, Sharon Houston McConnell was my mother. I remember the day of your funeral there in Carthage, Mo. at Park Cemetery. I didn't attend as I was a very little girl, but my mother did. I remember her coming home afterwards with tears streaming down her beautiful face. I was confused and frightened and she explained she was crying for her friend, a very brave man, who died for his country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. My mother is now in Heaven with you. Please give her a hug and kiss for me.

    Dear PFC Phillip Dale Joslen, 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
