    Dear SGT Patrick Lynn Basile, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Thank you Patrick Basile

    My husband and I visited the Memorial 2 years ago. Since we both were born and raised in Fontana we wanted to pay tribute to Patrick for his service. My husband grew up close to where Patrick grew up. He knew that Patrick's name should be on the wall along with all of the brave men and women who served during the Vietnam War. Having found Patrick's name my husband took this photo. The picture captures Patrick's name and an image of my husband taking the photo.

  • Marc Dietrich, a friend of Patrick's brother Chris passed away this week

    In thinking of Marc's passing, I remember Patrick's brother Chris who passed away about 30 years. We all knew how much Chris missed his brother. And Marc missed Chris, as we all still do. May their souls all rest in peace.

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.
