    Uncle Gary, You died bravely for our freedom. I have always been so proud that you are my Uncle since i was old enough to know how to be proud. It was if you were with us at every Sunday Dinner. Grandma and mommy missed you every single day of their lives. Grandma had a room dedicated to you with all your medals and pictures and certificates. I fought for your dress blues. Aunt Ang, Uncle Sal, Uncle Bernie, all never let your memory die. We never will. My son Jeff looks just like you. And My son Scott is as tough as you.Maybe future Marines? I wanted to join the USMC but mommy took the pen out of my hand and said she didnt want to lose me too. But Uncle you would be proud to know i fight my wars as bravely as if you were behind me. I have courage in the face of fear. I will not back down for truth and Justice. I thank you Uncle for keeping me strong since i was a little girl, i wanted to be just like you. And in a way i am. Thank you for sacrificing your life so that we may be free. Thank you for watching over me my whole life. I love you endlessly, and someday i will feel your arms around me telling me how safe i will always be now. My mom still cries for you. And now gram is with you. Gram was so brave Uncle, she missed you every breath until her last, when she knew she would finally see u again.
    Thank you for being my Uncle. Semper Fi. Thank you for bringing a Sgt Marine in at my worst moment in life. I am so grateful.For now I am free.Always Faithful.
    Love Always your niece,
    Lisa Angela Walsh

    as I grow older, I think of friends from my youth such as Gary. He was a leader of "the guys" who played stickball at Washington schoolyard, went to dances and grew up together. Gary looked out for younger members of our group like me. He had a passion for life. I wills always think good thoughts of him.

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.
