    You were my freshman brother in high school and we became friends. You wrote to me when I joined the Navy and we stayed in touch. I was so saddened to learn of your death in a horrible war. I often think of what your life might have been like.

    It has been many years and I always visit your grave and leave flowers every Memorial Day. I often think of you and she'd a few tears.

    Was so so sad when I learned he had died! Have thought of him so often over the years. Always will. He was a wonderful person. His class picture is exactly how I remember him.

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.
