  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LT Stephen Owen Musselman, 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
  • Rest in God's Hands

    I remember that terrible day you left the deck of the USS America,never to return. It was a great blow to all the sailors in VA82 and beyond. You were sorely missed then as an MIA and still missed today as a fallen and found warrior. Rest with God now and we shall meet once more when my tour of duty is up on this earth.

    I honored your name at the wall in DC when I worked there in 2006.

    Tomorrow the mini-wall is coming to UT Dallas where I am a professor - I will honor your name again.

    Your high school friend and former B-52 pilot,

  • If I should die...remembrances for LT Stephen Owen MUSSELMAN, USN...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

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
