    Dear SP4 Carl Elmus Adkison, 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

  • MORE THAN A NAME ON A WALL

    Posted on 10/28/03 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    Here is a link to a website that has the Statler Brothers performing their song More Than A Name On A Wall.It was performed at The Wall during a special remembrance day. I could just leave the lyrics but I feel it's better to hear the words. They speak to each of us who come here to remember our fallen brothers and sisters.

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 9/11/03 - by Chris Spencer
    It's said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for family, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning hush,
    I am the swift, uplifting rush of
    quiet birds in circled flight,
    I am the stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there, I did not die.

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.
