    Frank and Bill Murray were my best friends in AIT at Ft.Gordon, Camp Crockett and again in jump school. Be did everything together and I was angered when I was not deployed with him. My path took me to NCO school and a different path in Vietnam. When I arrived in Vietnam I ran into some of our old buddied and it was through them I learned of your passing. Many years have now passed and as I come closer to the end of my travels I hope to meet again.

    Dear CPL Philip Frank Nestico, 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

    Curt Carter

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
