    I joined Lt. Metz Platoon the night before he was killed. He talked to me that night, and the next morning we took fire at the base of Nui Ba Din. Lt. Metz and his rto Daniel Pettit along with a medic were moving to my right when Lt Metz was hit along with the medic. Pettit was only hit in his canteen.

    Danny was my classmate in high school. He was the smartest guy in school. He knew what he wanted to be and do. I think of him often. His birthday is coming up soon. Just want him to know he is not forgotten.

    Dear 2LT Danny Ray Metz, 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

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
