    So you have the distinction of being one of the last casualties of the Vietnam War. I honestly don't know if that's a blessing or a curse. I do know that you should be remembered for your service and sacrifice, like the 58,000 plus Americans before you. Thank you for serving your country.

  • Thinking about you

    Thinking about you today. Told your story to a co-worker. Wanted you to know you are not forgotten. I think about all the what ifs and my head spins. You are a hero and I tell my boys all about you and what a great man you were. Your pic still hangs at the Woburn Boys and Girls club and they are so proud to let everyone know you are their great uncle. Rest easy Uncle Charlie

  • Of Birth and Death

    Posted on 4/29/15 - by Meg Wolf meg@megg.us
    I was born in the morning on April 29, 1975, the same day Charles lost his life in combat. The next day marked the fall of Saigon. My mother saved the newspaper from that day, and 40 years later still has it.

    Let us not forget how horrific war is. Let us not blindly "support the troops" to the point where we refuse to criticise their leadership...the ones who never have to see the front lines but make the decisions that put our friends and families right there. Let us never forget the enormous sacrifices made by our servicemen and women, and honor them by providing them with the best care possible when they return from duty, and respecting them with pay that doesn't require their families to be on welfare, as so many are. Let's honor them by figuring out how we can "support our troops" and take care of them with the respect, honor, and dignity they deserve.

    Being that I was born immediately after he died, I do not know him or his family. I have my own life to live, my own dreams, goals, and ambitions. But in my heart, I will always carry a piece of Charles McMahon...I will always respect the lives lost in war and battle, and I will live my life to the fullest in rememberance of thise who were unable to.

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.
