    Dear SP4 Richard James Beck Jr, 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

    Jim's sister Mary (I believe that was her real name) was my 2nd grade teacher at Blessed Sacrament Grade School in Sioux City, Iowa in 1968. I remember the day in morning prayers when she asked us all to pray for her brother who was being sent to Vietnam. We wrote him letters and she would read some of his letters to the class. I remember the day we found out. We'd left for lunch and when we came back, we were greeted in class by a substitute teacher who broke the news to us. We were so crushed by her loss and never got to see her again. We loved her spirit. She taught me to love singing. I hope that she was eventually able to find peace within herself over Jim's death. It still brings tears to my eyes. Sr. Stephanos - we never forgot you or your brother Jim.

    Jim, it has been a long time, but in many ways a blink. I have thought of you often and will continue, You were a great loss to me.

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.
