Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/24/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SP4 Robert Henry Miller, sirMORE
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
Classmate of your sister LisaPosted on 10/27/13I remember Lisa personally giving me a condolence on the death of my brother Darrell Colford- 11 months after Robert's death. I still think of Lisa and your family, as well, knowing we both went through the same experience losing our brothers. We lost Darrell in November and were notified on Veterans Day. I can still picture Lisa playing in the orchestra that day and thinking how hard that must have been for her. Not knowing that the same fate awaited me that afternoon.MORE
God Bless all the Veterans. May God keep you in his care.

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.
