    John was around 3 years younger than me, but I remember him from a few family gatherings. I was in the service from 65 to 69, then in early 69 I attended John's funeral. Strange the thoughts that go through your mind at a time like that, but the one thought that is still with me is the feeling of being proud to be in the same family as John.

    Me and John were buddies and worked together at Taylor's Gulf Gas Station in Reseda, Ca. I have fond memories of those days and I am proud to have known him. Rest in peace my friend, Semper Fi.

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
