REMEMBRANCES

  • Gone But Not Forgotten

    It has been a lot of years since I last saw you and my memories are somewhat faded.I believe that you had been with us only a few weeks when we were sent to the rock quarry to provide security. I believe that Poyner, Ski, you and I were together that day and I remember you walking up the south slope, the sound of the explosion and the look on your face. I remember thinking you would be ok and kidding you about getting time off already and I remember being told a couple off days later that you didn't make it. I wish we had had time to get to know one another better. Rest In Peace

    ALWAYS REMEMBERED

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From all your "Band of Nam Brothers"

    Archie and I were High School Classmates. He was a quiet, easygoing, and
    friendly young man. Though it has been over 30yrs, he will forever be in our thoughts. Archie, my friend, The Class of 1966, Carver High School, Delray Beach, Fla. salute you. Walter Byrd, USMC, (RSVN - 12/25/68 -12/20/69).

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.
