    Dear 2LT William Lee Menconi, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I was one of Bill's roommates in the 4th platoon of our OCS company. I was so sorry to have read about his loss in the Stars and Stripes back in 69. He was a great man.
  • A Good Leader and a Good Man

    Along with SGT Ken Locke I also served with Lt. William Menconi in Fort Benning, GA Co. E, 6th Bn, 2nd Tng Brigade, until he left for service in VietNam. We were all stricken with grief when we heard of his death. To this day I remember him fondly as a good leader and a good man. This Memorial Day I honor his sacrifice and memory.

    Lee was friends with my older brother and his gang. He was an extraordinarly kind and engaging person. The world lost a man who surely would have been a leader in whatever he chose to do.

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
