REMEMBRANCES

  • My friend Bert

    Posted on 5/30/17 - by Jim Leiter
    Bert and I were friends in New Orleans and we would spend the weekends together going out hitting the dance clubs and bars. It all came to an abrupt end when he got drafted. He came home once on leave, and we went out like we normally would. That was the last time I was with my friend.

    Bert, I am remembering you and your ultimate sacrifice to this great country this day.

    To Kathy, I'm sorry, but that was the only picture I have of Bert.

    Bert as we all called him grew up in the cane fields on Supple Plantation in White Castle,La before his family moved to the New Orleans area. He was very much an outdoors person and enjoyed life. He always had a smile on his face and I know he would be very proud of his son. I am very proud to call him Cuz, that is
    Cousin in French for those who don't know. Thank you for the freedom you gave
    To us by giving your life in battle.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 7/23/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Bertrand C Medine 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, 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.
