  • A Young Life Lost Too Soon

    I did not know Kenneth, but my family and I lived across the street from his family for 12 years. The Lancasters never stopped grieving their loss or gave up hope that he might still be found. Their love was an inspiration, as was his service and sacrifice.

    I still have Kenneth's POW/MIA bracelet that I got back in middle school in the early 70's. I wear it off and on in his honor. I sought out his name on the Vietnam war memorial in Wasington DC and also went to visit the traveling wall when it came to my area in Massachusetts. He made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for that i will remember him and keep him and his family in my thoughts.

  • To Kenneth's famliy and friends

    I met Kenneth in Vietnam at the 9th Infantry Base Camp, Martin Cox (Bearcat), located 3 km from the village of Long Thanh. We talked on a few occasions at Bearcat. We discovered that we lived close by each other in Montgomery County Maryland. I was from the Rockville Aspen Hill area and I think Kenneth was from Wheaton. We exchanged information about people "back home" that we knew. It was comforting to share this kind of information about home; almost like getting a letter from home, but better, because it was real conversation.
    Kenneth was a real nice person. I worried about him because he was out on operations most of the time. He gave his life in defense and liberation of the South Vietnamese people. He is a true hero of America. Like many young men of that war, he gave his life in service to our county. I will remember Kenneth and our friendship always. By the grace of God, I returned home to my wife and family after my tour in Vietnam. I Hope to meet Kenneth when I get to Heaven.

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.
