  • Neighbor and Friend

    Tomie was my neighbor and friend. He was about three years older than I and was like an older brother to many of us in the neighborhood. I remembeer how he would take us with him to the Drag Races to watch him compete in the stock car race. One of his younger brothers and I served in Vietnam at the same time in different divisions. I remember when I returned home from Vietnam a day earlier than expected his mother and sister picked me up at the air port to take me home to surprise my mom.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 David Tomie Bell, 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.
