    Dear SGT William Marvin Bellile, 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 There

    William it was a rough night that night. I was there for a stand down with my Company, B/2/506th Infantry....I was their FO from B Battery, 2/319th and decided to sleep with the Battery. First the rockets came followed by mortars and finally small arms. 16 men were wounded including the Battery Commander and his Executive Officer. As things got quite the wounded were flown out. At daylight I was informed I was the new battery Commander. That night was hectic and many Bee Hive rounds were fired. There is not a doubt you pulled your weight, if you hadn't I would not be here today. Thank you brother. Picture is of A Battery 2/319th Artillery on Firebase Currahee where we parted. I am Cherokee and will make a tobacco offering in your memory

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.
