  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/25/14 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Edward Gene Lacey, 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 UnKnown Son

    I often wonder what you would've done, if you had known about your future son. If it could've carried you through battles whether lost or won, and brought you home to meet your unknown son. The warrior child turned man, him like his bothers in arms died way to young,left behind mothers, fathers, siblings and sometimes a unknown son.

    Never Forgotten,
  • Not forgotten

    Edward, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting our freedoms.

    You will never be forgotten by those who served in Vietnam.

    May God bless you and cradle you in his arms

    Your Nam Brothers...forever in our hearts

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
