    E G we knew each other by name and when I saw your remains at home I cried so much. I cry today for your sacrifice for our country. Your giving set my course for the Navy which shows you are the most brave soul from McGehee.
    See you on the other side. You are not forgotten.

    E.G. (Butch),

    You were 7 years older than me. I was only 12 when you died. I remember, though. My mom and your mom were very good friends. They also worked together. I remember when my mom told me. Thank you for your service. Thank you from myself, my family, my mom, and our hometown, McGehee. You make us proud. But you would have done that without the dying part. May you be at peace.

    I knew you as Chuck in the Nam. We were in the same platoon, and went on patrols together. We were in several fire fights together, covering each other's backs. I remember one fight in particular with several NVA. We were behind a couple trees and you yelled for me to cover you so you could get behind a downed tree to get a better shot. As you jumped your JOHN Wayne jump, I stepped from behind my tree and fired until you were behind that tree, shooting. After about 8 or 10 minutes, they disappeared back into the jungle. When we checked their position for any dead, all we found was lots of blood. I left the Nam a week before you were killed. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and think if I had been there, you might still be with us today. God bless your soul Chuck. Randy Estes, Marmaduke, Ar.

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.
