    Dear SGT David Paul McCord, 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.

    With respect, Sir

    Gunny Cooper was next to you when you took the hit. He was never again the same man. I was getting ready to go on a night patrol when I heard. I never forgot you, or how I should have been with you. If I worked in the messhall like a cook was suppose to instead of playing grunt maybe I would have even been able to take the hit for you. But God didn't want it to work out like that on that august night in 1968. You have been apart of me ever since. As long as I am alive you will live in me. I cannot let you go. I cannot let you die. I speak to you every day and sometimes you even talk back. I will not let you be alone or forgotten, never.

    David, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we enjoy today.

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
