    As Memorial Day approaches my thoughts are of you being taking away so young and not here with all of us. I know though that God had a plan for you far greater than you staying here with us and I also know that you made the ultimate sacrifice you shed your blood for all of us. As your family that makes me sad, but so proud to have a hero like you in our family who died fighting in his belief of his Flag, God and Country. Thank you my wonderful Uncle Richie you are missed everyday since you were taken away......! Love you always Debbie

    I've heard a lot about Richard over the years. His niece Debbie is best friends with my sister Anne. Debbie has always been like a sister to me. She speaks quite highly of Richard. I wish I had been able to meet him. Semper Fi God Bless

    Dear PFC Richard McGregor, 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

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
