  • A friend and neighbor remembered

    I looked For Thomas' name on the wall in DC, but not until the moving wall came to Oswego, IL, did I finally find it. It's been a very long time since Laurelton, going to school with his brother, Jimmy, at St. Mary Magdalene. Will never forget the love and service he gave his country and thank him and all who served and still serve their country. God Bless all and Tommy's family.

    We went to the same grammar school and hung out in the neighborhood. He was kind, friendly and just a nice guy.He was one of three of my marine friends who all grew up together, Walter Roseolie, Mickey Walsh my best friend and Tommy. All USMC and all KIA in just a little more than a year. They were the best.

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.
