REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/17/16 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SSGT Tom Robert Adler, 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

    DEAR STAFF SERGEANT ADLER,
    I WISH YOU HAD A PHOTO GIVEN. IT IS GOOD TO PUT A FACE WITH THE NAME BECAUSE YOU WERE MORE THAN JUST A NAME, YOU HAD A LIFE WHICH WAS CUT TOO SHORT.
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A COMBAT ENGINEER. PERHAPS IF YOU WEREN'T IN VIETNAM, YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE DIED OF ILLNESS.

    REST IN PEACE.

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 5/24/05 - by Bob Ross
    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 sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    Mary Frye – 1932

    My name is Phoenix Marr and I am a senior at Gridley High School. My teacher has started the Gridley High School Posting Project which is an opportunity for all of the students to write remembrances for those men and women who gave their lives while serving our country. Your outstanding service has shown many people your courageous efforts and strengths! You believed in this country and didn’t let us down! You proved to be an amazing soldier that will truly be missed! You will never be forgotten! God Bless.

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.
