  • I Remember Tommy

    We were friends growing up in Donelson TN, on the east side of Nashville. We both went to Hickman Elementary School and Donelson Jr High and High School.

    Tommy was very easy-going; likeable. He was a happy, well adjusted boy growing up. After we graduated from HS in 1967, I lost track of him until I heard that we'd lost him in Viet Nam.

    Although I was barely a year old when you gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Daddy (your brother, George) spoke of you often and because of that, from the time I was little I always said if I had a son I would name him after you and daddy, so I was blessed with my son and named him THOMAS EDWARD, as Thomas was growing up daddy would say how he resembled you and well he also joined the service, USMC.. He's deployed and returned safe, thank GOD.. THANK YOU for the legacy you left HONOR COURAGE and COMMITMENT.... til we meet again in heaven, you'll always be in my heart and my HERO.. LOVE YOUR NIECE, Sheila MARLIN Tomberlain

    Dear PFC Leonard Thomas Marlin, 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.
