    You are honored and remembered on the Heartland Youth for Decency Vietnam Memorial. The Vietnam Memorial was built by a group of high school and college students from the La Mesa area called Heartland Youth for Decency back in 1970. The memorial park is dedicated to veterans who were living in Southern California's Heartland area (consisting of the communities of La Mesa, Spring Valley, Jamul, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, Santee, and Lakeside) when they accepted the call to military service, during which service they gave their lives in the Vietnam War.

  • Jim's Memorial at Mount Soledad

    A plaque has been placed on the mount Soledad Memorial (San Diego) for my good friend Jim, right next to my Dad and I. My Father James H McCormack was a Pacific Marine, WWII, and fought through Okinawa.
    My friend Jim and I went to Vietnam together but sadly only I lived through it. As I was putting a plaque up for my Dad my wife decided to put one up for me and I said "not without Jim!" ! So now we are all together for eternity, or how ever long these things last.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC James Gregory Mesa, 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

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
