  • A cousin who never met you - But honors your sacrifice

    Posted on 10/1/17 - by Dorothy Beckworth Dantoni
    Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. Wish you had lived to be able to raise your children and know your grandchildren. Many Beckworths have, and continue to have served in the military, including wars back to the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, WWI and WWII. Rest in Peace. An ancestor to both of us, Amos Beckwith, is a DAR patriot.

    You are one of our gallant hero's! Thank you for your unselfish sacrifice!
    I knew your son Danny in 2nd or 3rd grade. You helped me get an ice cream out of a deep ice cream box the night before you left for Vietnam! I will always remember your kindness to a little boy.
    May God eternally bless you and your family!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/27/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SSGT Harley Daniel Beckworth, 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 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.
