  • You'll never be forgotten!

    So many years have passed since we lost you. You will always live on in this life in the hearts of your friends and family who love you. I will always remember your sweet caring heart. I heard you were helping others when you were taken and that is the kind of person you were. We had so much fun growing up in the neighborhood with all our friends. Now you have several of our friends with you including Doug and his and my son Aaron. I can picture you all sitting around telling stories and laughing. I'm so thankful we were friends.

    Thanks, Pat, for all the great times. You lived right across the street and I have so many wonderful remembrances of our times riding bikes and just being kids together. It's so sad that you were not able to live out your life.

    Dear SP4 William Patrick Murphy, 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

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
